Roseville Gardens is the second most dangerous area in Windsor. In 2020, total crime, violent crime and property crime in Roseville Gardens were all significantly above Canada’s national average.

Wyandotte Towne Centre was Windsor’s fourth most dangerous area in 2020. Like Meadowbrook, Roseville Gardens and Ford-Ferndale, Wyandotte Towne Centre was above Canada’s national average for total crime, violent crime, and property crime.
The fifth most dangerous area in Windsor is the downtown area (Downtown Windsor). Out of areas listed thus far in this post, Downtown Windsor has the highest population.
