COVID-19 Update: Getting Ready to Reopen

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon! The City has released our plan for a gradual, safe reopening of our facilities and services. Stay up to date by subscribing to our COVID-19 webpage.

Summer Programs Now Available

Our July and August program registration opened this week. New this summer, we’re offering outdoor fitness classes at Bayview Hill Community Centre. We also have a variety of virtual programs to choose from, a few spots left in our summer camps, and even a family paint night kit. 

Don’t Wait… Nominate!

We’re looking to recognize attractive, colourful and well-maintained front gardens in our community. Nominations are now open through July 2 for this year’s Richmond Hill Blooms Program.

Council Approves First Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP)

Building on our commitment to protecting the environment and becoming more resilient to the effects of climate change, the City has approved its first CEEP! The goal – net zero emissions by 2050. That means in 30 years, Richmond Hill will have reduced its greenhouse gas emissions and will not be emitting more than it is offsetting.

Help Reduce Single-Use Items

Single-use items like water bottles, plastic straws and plastic bags can negatively affect our natural environment. There are lots of small actions that you can take to reduce waste like taking your own reusable shopping and produce bags to the grocery store.

Take Part in Canada Day with Us!

Join us for a fun-filled celebration this July 1! Activities will include a virtual interactive showcase of performers, a drive-in concert, virtual fireworks and lots of fun and games for the whole family. Some activities require registration and space is limited, so make sure to sign up early!
