OAK RIDGES LAKE WILCOX SCHOOLS & PARKS
ABOUT OAK RIDGES LAKE WILCOX
Built upon a prime stretch of the glacially sculpted Oak Ridges Moraine – one of Ontario’s most well-known watersheds – the Oak Ridges neighbourhood is the northernmost in the City of Richmond Hill. Established along Yonge Street in 1799 by Joseph Genevieve and a group of French Royalists,
Oak Ridges is located in the north end of Richmond Hill, east of King City, immediately south of Aurora, and west of Whitchurch-Stouffville. Lake Wilcox is both a kettle lake and a community within Oak Ridges. Housing developments began to boom around Lake Wilcox in the 1950s. Lake Wilcox, as a part of the annexation of Oak Ridges, became a part of Richmond Hill in 1971. With all major arteries and public transit close at hand (YRT & VIVA), Oak Ridges is an extremely accessible neighbourhood for the downtown commuter. There are several older homes as well as extensive new developments in the area, and the neighbourhood includes several parks and schools.
With 6 public schools, 6 Catholic schools and 1 private school in this neighbourhood, your Kids can get a great education.
