Windfields Park is on the former site of E.P. Taylor's Windfields Farm, which he founded in 1937 and became one of the top thoroughbred racing stables in North America (its Northern Dancer won the 1964 Kentucky Derby). When the reclusive Taylor moved to the Bahamas in 1968 he sold off the farm to developers, and donated a 31 hectare park and his mansion to the city. Starting at York Mills travelling South along the Wilket Creek Trail from Irving Paisley Park, Winfields Park is the next park along the Wilket Creek trail.
