WHAT’S NEW

A HUGELY SUCCESSFUL GRAND OPENING WEEKEND

We experienced a historic moment this last October 27th. We’re very pleased to say that Observatory Hill’s Grand Opening was an incredible success!

A LOCAL STAR

Anyone who's ever visited the David Dunlap Observatory knows it's an incredibly special place. Not only is it strikingly beautiful, it also carries an aura that's almost surreal; perhaps that's why it was chosen to be a star, -in the figurative sense of course. In 1960 the film "Universe" was released by the National Film Board of Canada, and was met with much praise. It was nominated for an Oscar in the 'best documentary' category the year it was released, and offered some of the most vivid special effects anyone had ever seen....

THE DAVID DUNLAP OBSERVATORY AND ITS INFLUENCE ON POPULAR CULTURE

You may be interested to know, the David Dunlap Observatory has actually contributed a great deal to the world of science fiction and popular culture, more than you might realize.

OBSERVATORY HILL NOW TRULY A DESTINATION IN RICHMOND HILL AND YORK REGION

110 acres (45 hectares) of the municipal park, conserved from the pre-2008 David Dunlap Observatory and Park, are now confirmed as destination green space in Richmond Hill, and will be supported by a $54 million budgetary allocation from the Town of Richmond Hill. This conserved park is adjacent to the projected 79-acre (32-hectare) Observatory Hill subdivision.

In its first phase, the new Town of Richmond Hill park plan will focus on general maintenance. But subsequent phases will introduce renovations to the David Dunlap Observatory, its beautiful administration building, plus the addition of exciting and interactive spaces. Current Town park planning envisages a skating trail, a visitor centre, tennis courts, and family-friendly picnic areas. The plan also proposes a feasibility study for a possible planetarium. All of this will work to heighten this site beyond anything either Richmond Hill or York Region has offered to date.

This project’s future is the area’s premier lifestyle, activity, and family destination. An incredible place to live, and an incredible place to invest; that’s all a certainty now. Get excited folks, Observatory Hill is a place you can call home in a town you already love. This once-in-a-lifetime living opportunity in Richmond Hill just became even more interesting.
