The Windsor Park Subdivision was created in 1911, just prior to amalgamation during the land booms in the early part of the century. In 1911, the site immediately to the east (River Lot 5) became the campus of the University of Alberta. In spite of this early start, most of the area remained undeveloped until the 1940s and 1950s when it was partially resubdivided and developed. In 1955, construction of the Groat Road Bridge improved access to central Edmonton.

Windsor Park is almost exclusively a neighbourhood of single-detached housing. A small number of businesses that serve local residents and university students within the surrounding area are located along 87 AVE. The neighbourhood, located adjacent to the North Saskatchewan River Valley, affords residents easy access to the Capital City Recreation Park system as well as spectacular views from vantage points along Saskatchewan Drive. The neighbourhood is also unique for its proximity to, and interface with, the University of Alberta (U of A). The western border of the U of A’s north campus, which accommodates the newly constructed Electrical & Computer Engineering Research Facility, faces onto a row of gracious residential homes in Windsor Park. The primary U of A undergraduate residence, Lister Hall, is also located adjacent to the neighbourhood, just south of 87th Avenue. The Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium is also within walking distance of the neighbourhood, as are the U of A hospital facilities.

Windsor Park was named by an English syndicate in 1910 when it was purchased for residential development. The neighbourhood may have been named after Windsor, England, or after the Windsor Castle specifically.
