Yes, Richmond Hill is a city. In fact, it’s the third most populous municipality in York Region. It also holds the distinction of being the most populous town in Canada. Truth be told, this pretty much sums up Richmond Hill: A growing, thriving city that retains its small-town charm.

What helps keep the quaint, neighbourly feel is the city’s attention to detail. Every year, the city decorates old downtown, a strip along Yonge Street, with beautiful floral baskets. Homage to the city’s former glory as the rose capital of Canada. The city also has a light-noise bylaw, meaning it restricts the amount and type of light that may be emitted at night. This bylaw is to enable the David Dunlop Observatory—a large astronomical telescope housed on an 189-acre estate–to function properly. But it also tames the all-night urban feel found in other cities. On weekends, you can find many residents heading out to fish on Wilcox Lake or setting up a picnic to spend the day in the 55-hectare park that protects this kettle lake.

Just don’t this city as a sleepy small-town. Almost half of Richmond Hill’s residents earn over $100,000, making it one of the more affluent cities in Ontario. The city’s employment rate is also quite high with almost 67% of the population gainfully employed. The biggest sectors in the city are business, finance and management, although small businesses also seem to flourish, with more than half of all Richmond Hill employers reporting fewer than four workers. Big corporations also call this city home, with giants like Acklands Grainger, BMW and Staples, setting up headquarters in this southern Ontario local.

Neighbourhoods

There are five districts in Richmond Hill: Dollar, Gormley, Langstaff, Oak Ridges and Temperanceville. Each community has its own distinct history and their own advantages.

Those who want easy highway access gravitate towards Dollar. This neighbourhood sits near Leslie Street and Highway 7 and is in close proximity to Highway 404. Residents who want access to nature and parkland like Gormley, as this area is protected by conservation rules. Another pricier option is the Oak Ridges area, which is also protected land.

Families who want larger homes for sale in Richmond Hill at a more affordable price point usually end up in Langstaff. Homes in this region were built in the 1960s and 1970s on larger lots. In the last decade, many homeowners remodelled and updated these solid family houses. Another good option is Temperanceville, an area that offers great outdoor recreational facilities. Two particularly good areas to look for family houses for sale with tremendous value are North Richvale and Crosby. Both areas attract long-term family home buyers as the schools are excellent.

To narrow down your options talk to a Richmond Hill Realtor. Better still, spend a weekend checking out a few open houses in Richmond Hill. You can make a preliminary list using our hot-list rankings. This list classifies all Richmond Hill communities based on the number of listings, sales price and how long homes stay on the market.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Richmond Hill’s downtown core. Good options include Vaughan, Aurora and Whitchurch-Stouffville. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Maple or Ringwood. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Newmarket, Brampton and Uxbridge are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

Richmond Hill began as a small settlement in the early 1870s and the city grew slowly. By the early 1950s there were about 3,300 residents and within 20 years the city’s population would explode by 1000%. The reason? Immigration. Attracted to the large lots, family homes and surrounding farmland, immigrants began to settle in Richmond Hill. Since the city was just north of Toronto, it provided commuters quick access highways while keeping housing costs low. Times have changed. Now Richmond Hill homes are some of the priciest properties in Canada—in part because it’s such a great place to raise a family.

Every May and June, residents gather at a different park each weekend to plant trees, while Sundays in June marks the start of the Elgin Barrow Arena Farmer’s Market. In the warmer months, city planners host local guided hikes along the Don and Humber watersheds and in July residents are treated to city-sponsored Concerts in the Park, where locals and invited guests will perform for anyone that shows up at the Richmond Hill Park on Elgin Mills Road.

Food is also a big attraction in Richmond Hill. With only 40% of the city’s population claiming English as their mother tongue, this means a great deal of variety and spice in the local eateries. On any given street corner you may find restaurants that cater to Chinese, Iranian, Russian, Italian, even the Korean palette.

For families, there’s a great wave pool that’s part of the city’s public sports and recreation facilities. The pool comes equipped with a waterslide, timed waves, a swirling pool and an on-deck sauna.
