The airport, established by Marion Alice Orr, one of Canada's first women pilots, consisted of two runways in an X pattern; 3,700 ft (1,100 m) and 2,500 ft (760 m). The early runway were grass strip and paved over in 1960. At one point, the Maple Airport was the third busiest private commercial and civilian airport in Canada not to have a control tower. The urbanization of Vaughan and the Maple area led to the closure of the airport 1987. Nothing remains of the airport today, which is now a housing development and Maple Creek PS now occupies the site. A small park in the neighbourhood was named Maple Airport Park in honour of the former airport.
