Windsor Park History
The land that is now Windsor Park was surveyed in 1882 as River Lot 3 and the adjacent University of Alberta was surveyed as River Lot 5. In 1910, the owner of the land title was John McFadden who later sold the estate to Magrath Hart & Company who then subdivided the land and resold it to real estate developers in 1911. However, even after the subdivision, most Windsor Park residences were built during the 1940s and 1950s.
In 1955, Groat Road was constructed to provide easy access to Edmonton. Windsor Park is bounded by the University of Alberta to the east, south by University Avenue, north by the North Saskatchewan River Valley and west by Saskatchewan Drive.
