WHAT’S NEW

A CLEARER DIRECTION FOR THE DAVID DUNLAP OBSERVATORY PARK

You already know Observatory Hill is set to become one of Canada's foremost communities, and you already know its public spaces will match that forecasted standard of excellence, but everyone has been eagerly awaiting a true direction for the park and heritage site. That wait might be over. Two unique plans (A and B) were created for this special site with the intent of allowing public opinion and the best possible outcome for coming and current communities. Plan A is called "Observatory Park" and would act as a regional attraction highlighted by The David Dunlap Observatory...

POPULAR TRADITIONS BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS

In the spirit of this holiday season, here are a few of the most popular pre-Christmas traditions that people observe today.

HOW A SMALL SHACK EXPANDED OUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE UNIVERSE

Observatory Hill is a master-planned community nestled in one of the greenest parts of Richmond Hill. The world-renowned David Dunlap Observatory, for which the development is named, has been an important instrument of astrological discovery.

AN ENDLESS EXPANSE OF AMENITIES

When it was first constructed in 1935, the David Dunlap Observatory of Richmond Hill was a marvel of science and engineering. Even to this day it has the third largest telescope in the world and represents the breadth of humanity’s unending curiosity. For generations, astronomers have gazed out into the far reaches of the universe, discerning the unknown and trying to make sense of the infinite space that surrounds us. It is this sense of grandeur that Observatory Hill has used as inspiration to deliver a selection of amenities that are simply out of this world.

Before the project reaches completion this inspired community will include some truly stellar features and amenities. One such example will be the nearby Planetarium where kids and adults alike can learn about the wonders of our universe. Unlike any other location in the world, residents of Observatory Hill will live within steps of a place where they can learn about astronomy, as well as the place where some of those discoveries were first made.

Following this astronomical trend, there is also a Star Path scheduled for construction. A Star Path is a walking path made of specially designed glow-in-the-dark concrete. Residents will be able to experience the majesty of taking a moonlit stroll while starlight twinkles both above and below them.

There’s also great news for parents with young kids, as a Splash Pad is planned to be included in the community! On those hot summer days when not even the A/C can subdue the sweltering humidity, you’ll be able to take the kids (and yourself) and cool off with refreshing blasts of water.  

In addition to these fun and entertaining amenities Observatory Hill residents will also get to enjoy a brand new Amphitheater which will host theatrical plays and musical performances. However, if that doesn’t tickle your fancy you can also play a game of tennis, go ice skating, enjoy a picnic, or take a walk in the newly revitalized park area.

When this new community in Richmond Hill is your home, you won’t ever feel a lack of fun or convenience. From green space to outer space, Observatory Hill has it all.
