Lake Wilcox Park

The northern half of Richmond Hill is located on a natural feature called the Oak Ridges Moraine which stretches more than 160 km between the Niagara Escarpment and the Trent River.  The Oak Ridges Moraine is known for its varied habitats and geographic features shaped 13,000 years ago during the last ice age.

The Oak Ridges Moraine is special because it provides naturally filtered water for abundant wildlife, surrounding populations, and natural areas.

As part of our five days of celebrations opening ‘A Symphony in Watercolour’, we will visit the Oak Ridges Moraine Parkland and Boardwalk (free activity) from 4-7 pm on Saturday September 29.

55 Olde Bayview Ave,
Richmond Hill, ON L4E 3C8
Transportation: If possible we will carpool to this venue.

Take a leisurely walk along the boardwalk. See the sun set over Lake Wilcox, a traditional Kettle Lake on the Oak Ridges Moraine. Opportunities for photography and plein air painting are plentiful.
