Originally this Toronto neighbourhood was home to the Windfields Farm. The land was subsequently sold to developers in the 1960s. The planned community called Windfields began in the 1970s and finished in the 1980s. For anyone who has driven through the area, you will have noticed that the architecture is very much of the ’70s and ’80s aesthetic. Many split levels and bungalows can be found.

Windfields western border runs alongside Toronto’s most exclusive neighbourhood, The Bridle Path. So it does not wonder that Widndfields has flourished in recent years.
Windfields is a more car-centric neighbourhood considering that there are so few shops and restaurants within walking distance. There are bus stops, and there is a GO Station not too far away as well.

Another shopping option is just on the other side of HWY 401, Bayview Village, a long-standing shopping mall where you can find many luxury brands. Do you see the theme here?

Arguably Toronto’s top hockey equipment store, for many decades, can also be found nearby – Just Hockey. The name says it all. This was the go-to shop for all of our hockey gear growing up. The best skate sharpening as well!
