It's the 20th anniversary of National Public Works Week celebrations in Richmond Hill! Join us for some family-fun at the Public Works Open House & Healthy Yards event. You'll learn about the important role that Public Works staff play in our community. You'll also have the chance to talk to gardening experts, enjoy a charity barbecue and bring home great prizes.
Educational displays and information booths show visitors first-hand how Richmond Hill and its Public Works staff take care of roads, water, parks, trees and public buildings. There are also helpful tips about home energy conservation, great sample giveaways and prizes.
You and your family can climb up and feel what it's like to sit in the driver's seat of a snowplow, front-end loader, flusher truck or fire truck. Staff will be there to answer questions about the equipment.
Learn about reptiles and amphibians at the Scales Nature Park booth. You'll have the chance to have a 'hands-on' experience. Kids can also enjoy face painting, get a cool temporary tattoo and/or have their portrait drawn by a caricature artist!
The Open House charity barbecue is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can buy hamburgers, hotdogs and drinks. Vegetarian options are also available. All proceeds support Hill House Hospice.
The Healthy Yards Event is an opportunity to pick up your pre-ordered native plant kits, rain barrels and composters, talk to gardening experts and bring home some free mulch for your yard (while quantities last). This year, in celebration of Canada 150, you can also take home a free maple tree (while quantities last)!
Fill out a ballot and win some great prizes at the National Public Works Week Open House. Giveaways include rain barrels, swim passes and tickets to shows at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
Take a van tour of the Operations Centre site, which includes Richmond Hill's Fire Training Tower and award-winning Snow Storage Facility. The tour also includes a visit to York Region's Community Environmental Centre.
