ABOUT OAK RIDGES RICHMOND HILL

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.



What's special about the Oak Ridges Moraine?

The things that make the Oak Ridges Moraine special, including its water, its wildlife, and its contributions to surrounding populations and natural areas, also make it worth protecting.


Water

The Moraine stores a very large volume of water underground (groundwater) that is an important source of drinking water for many people in Ontario. In Richmond Hill, this water also feeds into the Humber, Rouge and Don River systems. These systems all flow south to Lake Ontario. The soils of the Moraine also clean our water by filtering rain and melted snow.
