Tradewinds Park & Stables roots run deep. From 1944 to 1975, Tradewinds Farm was a horse-breeding and boarding business owned and operated by William K. and Margueritte C. McLean. Their original farmhouse still stands and is now a museum on the north side of the park. If your child is interested in discovering what it takes to be a farmer, the Junior Farmers' Camp is for them, E-I-E-I-O!
