Safety Guidelines & Rules
- Dogs must be leashed at all times except at the Windsor Lake Dog Park located on the north side of Windsor Lake.
- Swimming is permitted only within the designated Swim Beach Area marked by ropes and buoys.
- Swim diapers are requested for use with young children.
- Ingestion of untreated agricultural water such as Windsor Lake carries an inherent risk of possible exposure to pathogenic organisms. Individuals who have been ill are asked to refrain from entering the water.
- Algae may be present.
- For your safety, it is the Town of Windsor Parks, Recreation and Culture’s policy to not allow persons or pets on our frozen bodies of water. Although ice is tempting to walk on, temperatures rarely stay consistent enough to form stable ice. Falling through ice can cause great bodily harm or death.
