Richmond Hill is home to more than 166 parks and 544 hectares of natural, environmental area. Throughout our parks system you can find athletic fields, nature trails, walkways, playgrounds, picnic areas, tennis courts, open space, etc. We are confident that our green spaces offer the residents of Richmond Hill many recreational opportunities.
Neighbourhood and community groups can adopt a natural area park. They can become involved in cleanup, reforestation of sapling planting, wild flower or bulb planting and natural area stewardship. If you would like to see any changes made to current parks, please call 905-771-8800.

Motorized Vehicles and Nature Don't Mix
The use of motorized vehicles is prohibited by the Town of Richmond Hill By-laws in parks and on trails. If charged under the Town’s Noise By-law, Chapter 1055 of the Town of Richmond Hill Municipal Code, the individual(s) may be fined up to $5,000 for each offence upon conviction. Many opportunities exist for the legal use of off-road vehicles on designated trail networks that are outside of protected areas. Protected wilderness areas must be maintained in a natural, wild state, as the law intends. Please see the brochure below for more information.
