Where to get outside in Richmond Hill

Apr 21, 2015

With spring finally in the air check out Timbercreek Communities’ top picks for places to get outside and enjoy some fresh air in Richmond Hill. We offer rental apartments located in a quiet, family-friendly and residential neighbourhood of the city.

Richmond Hill Heritage Centre

The Richmond Hill Heritage Centre is located in the picturesque Amos Wright Park and offers an afternoon full of excitement and history. The Heritage Centre is set in an 1840s Regency style cottage, fully restored to reflect this historical period. When planning your visit to the Heritage Centre, don’t forget to pack your picnic basket and take the opportunity to stroll through the park and visit the stunning gardens.

Eyer Homestead Park and Ropes Course

Eyer Homestead Park and Property offers renovated heritage houses, a 1.75-acre park complete with an outdoor ropes course, a climbing wall and more. Climb your way to the top of the Eyer Ropes Challenge Course, which offers a whole afternoon of outdoor active fun. The course consists of high and low climbing elements, with the use of ropes and belay devices for safety. Eyer Homestead Park is a five-minute drive from Timbercreek’s Richmond Hill communities.

Mill Pond

Mill Pond Park is a great place to enjoy a TC Richmond Outsidespringtime walk, picnic or free concert as the weather warms up. The Concerts in the Park series at Mill Pond has been one of the city’s most exciting attractions, with free weekly concerts in the summer since 1975. Grab a blanket, some snacks, activities for the kids and have a picnic in this scenic Richmond Hill park.

David Dunlap Observatory

The David Dunlap Observatory opens in May for the Observatory’s 80th anniversary. This indoor and outdoor facility features Canada’s largest optical telescope, astronomy exhibits, lectures, special events and more. On clear nights you can enjoy outdoor star and planet gazing with the Observatory’s telescopes or bring your own and have a look. Timbercreek’s Richmond Hill apartments at 274 Cedar Avenue are only a 15-minute walk from this unique facility.

Enjoy the great outdoors this spring and summer in Richmond Hill. For more information about Timbercreek Communities, visit us attimbercreekcommunities.com
