Windsor

Riverside Cenotaph

With the shiny new WFCU centre open, the city closed down several community rinks and centres. Out front of the old Riverside Arena facing Wyandotte street is this Cenotaph.

This was the town of Riverside’s cenotaph, dating back to the days before it was swallowed up by Windsor.

I hope that our cultural affair department knows that this is here, and realizes the significance of it. Hopefully what ever fate befalls the arena, there is a provision made to keep the Cenotaph in the same place.

Hopefully no one shits the bed again.
