In 1982 the City of Irvine named Winslow Field for Charles F. Winslow. Known by all as "Chuck," he lived in Northwood with his family and worked tirelessly with others to make Northwood the best it could be. Starting with enabling Irvine residents to have a voice in the planning of their neighborhood with a voter referendum, then working with city leaders and independent developers to improve plans for the new village in Irvine, Chuck helped make Northwood better for generations to come. As a result of his efforts, Northwood is less populated than originally planned and Northwood Park is located in a safer and quieter location.

Chuck was a high school baseball star at Wilson High in Long Beach. After high school in 1953, he signed as a Minor League pitcher for the Visalia Stars, a Pittsburgh Pirates farm team. Then he played for the Long Beach Rockets semi-pro team which played the Dodgers and L.A. Angels in exhibition games. Chuck later played on the U.S. Army Baseball team.

In 1970 he moved his family to Northwood. Because he believed it was the best place to live, Chuck purchased a home for his mother in Northwood in 1976. Winslow Field honors Chuck's memory and dedication to the city and neighborhood he loved. Northwood is a better place because of him.
