Things to do

Find culture and thrills in Richmond Hill

Attractions in Richmond Hill come in a variety of distinct flavors, although a helping of culture is particularly easy to come by thanks to the Georgian-styled neighborhood around Regent Street and the small-town charm that oozes around every corner along Yonge Street. Continue your journey with a trip to Black Creek Pioneer Village, an 1800s settlement with period buildings and jovial costumed guides. Of course, it’s not all history and culture in these parts. Most Richmond Hill vacation rentals are within a quick drive of thrills and spills at the Canada’s Wonderland theme park and Ontario’s wilder inhabitants at Toronto Zoo.

Activities

Make time for family in Richmond Hill

Richmond Hill has plenty to keep you entertained. If you’re traveling with kids, the skateboard park, baseball diamonds, and inline skating trail at Richmond Green Sports Center are guaranteed to bring a smile. Keep the fun factor at maximum pace by paying a visit to Canada’s largest public pool, the Wave Pool on Hopkins Street, where features include a thrilling water slide with translucent sections and rainbow effects. One of the most eye-catching landmarks in the area is the David Dunlap Observatory, home to one of the biggest telescopes in the world.
