Community Information:

This community’s boundaries extend to Carville (16th avenue) Rd to the North, Hwy 7 to the South, Between Yonge Street and Bathurst Street.The area has gone through the construction of many large custom-built luxury residences.

After 1910, traffic along Yonge Street grew so quickly that 5-acre lots were created north of Langstaff Road. Soon, the first registered, residential subdivision appeared on the west side of Yonge Street between Langstaff Road and Carville Road. This community became known as Richvale.

By 1947 the Yonge Street radial railway ("North Yonge Railways"), finally, ended its active service from Toronto to Richmond Hill. After Yonge Street was rebuilt, that part of the infrastructure of South Richvale that needed overhauling, next, was the outdated sanitation system. Leaking septic tanks and weeping tile beds kept back the development of the community into smaller lots. In fact, for "Richvale" sewers didn't come until the late 1970's. Only, then, did more new homes on infill lots start to emerge.

Many of Richvale's new residents were commuters who drove to work in Toronto everyday. Growth was slow at first, because of the lack of public utilities, but gradually Richvale began to take shape. Richvale School on Spruce Avenue  held its first classes in the basement of the local Methodist Church in 1923; nine years later, in 1932, Richvale Post Office was opened.
