Community Information:

The Mill Pond area contains the essence of historic Richmond Hill. The many homes with their unique plaques show that this was a thriving community in the 1800's. The ambiance is relaxing and charming: mature trees line the streets and every house has a distinctive presentation.

The Mill Pond itself has historic significance to the community. Today it is a centre for family fun, but in the 1800's the pond itself provided the power for a local sawmill that employed many residents.

Located just north of Major Mackenzie and Yonge streets, the area is home to York Central Hospital, as well as Hill House Hospice. The central library is located nearby, and the new Centre for the Performing Arts brings internationally known entertainment to town. The McConaghy Seniors Centre has many recreational activities available to residents 55 and older.

The entire Richmond Hill community comes out to enjoy pastimes in this area. The actual Mill Pond Park with its' playground and walking/bike trails is a centre for relaxed family fun. For over 40 years the Mill Pond has hosted a Winter Carnival on the first week-end in February. Outdoor fun for everyone is provided, including music, pancake breakfasts, skating, hockey matches and special events.

In the summer for the past 35 years weekly music concerts are held here. A wide variety of music is featured- something for everyone's tastes. Barbecue treats for an informal dinner are available with the proceed going
