What’s unique at Amica Riverside
Our well-designed, 11-storey retirement residence in Windsor is ideally situated on Riverside Drive East, just south of Wyandotte Street. Every residence has its own balcony with views of the city or the river. The top-floor library is a popular destination for watching ships on the river or seasonal fireworks displays; the second-floor terrace is often the gathering place for live musical entertainment and other social events. 

Exploring the neighbourhood
The green space around Amica Riverside is part of its charm. Just across the street, you’ll find Reaume Park and Coventry Gardens with its accessible trails, benches, sculptured topiary and flower beds. Do some people-watching, cast your line from the fishing pier, listen to Windsor Symphony Orchestra summertime concerts or watch the famous Peace Fountain, the only international floating fountain in the world. Many residents move here from the nearby Riverside neighbourhood.

Things to do around Amica Riverside
Enjoy excursions to “the City of Roses” and the surrounding area for shopping, dining and services, including Devonshire Mall and Windsor Crossing Premium Outlets. Sip the latest vintage at one of Windsor-Essex’s wineries or try your luck at Caesar’s Casino. Join an outing to the renowned Point Pelee National Park for colourful birds, butterflies and gentle lake breezes. Windsor also has a dynamic art scene: see striking public art installations at the outdoor Windsor Sculpture Park, visit the latest exhibit at the Art Gallery of Windsor or discover an annual festival like the Art in the Park at Willistead Park or the Walkerville Art Walk.

A lifestyle designed for you

Choose from a wide range of convenient amenities and services designed to meet your physical, intellectual and social needs. Ask a neighbour to join you for shuffleboard or billiards, take a dip in the saltwater pool, chat with friends on the inviting main-floor patio over a cup of espresso or tend to the plants in our Victorian conservatory or raised flowerbeds.
