Ah, good ol’ Lasalle! Full of trails, parks, the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex, and great restaurants. Let’s take a look at what this town has to offer!
Lasalle differs from city-life in many ways! Lasalle offers many more trails, parks and outdoor spaces than other places in Windsor/ Essex County! Ojibway Prairie Complex & Nature Reserve is just a short drive away, on Matchette rd. Walk through the self-guiding nature trails where you can discover and learn about the park’s 160 acres of pin oak forest, savanna, ponds and tallgrass prairie. You might even luck out and see a deer or coyote! Or maybe take a day to enjoy one of Lasalle’s great parks, including Ojibway Oaks Park, Optimist Park, River Canard Park and more! Take a look at the map of the trails in Lasalle for yourself: https://icreate-essex.esolutionsgroup.ca/231110_LaSalle/en/things-to-do/resources/LA_TRAILS_2013.pdf
Check out the Lasalle Outdoor Pool! The pool area includes a water umbrella, a large shallow end, deep end, diving board and slide. Free swim days are: Friday, August 5, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. sponsored by Tim Hortons. Wednesday, August 24 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. sponsored by Essex Power Corporation. Definitely a Lasalle summer favourite and great past-time for kids who need a place to let loose!
The Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex is open from 7:30am- 8:00pm from Monday to Friday and 8:30am- 4:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The Vollmer Complex offers:
- 28 soccer Fields

Looking for a great local Restaurant for Friday Night’s Family Night? We’ve got you covered! Try Bull’s Eye Pizza, Joe Schmoe’s Eats N Drinks, Zaytoun for a great falafel plate, Red Sun Restaurant, or Roma’s Pizza! Then head over to Family Video on Matchette for that movie you wanted to watch that Netflix didn’t have 🙂
So that’s a wrap! All in all, Lasalle’s a great family-friendly space… and now we’re hungry for pizza 🙂
