South Richvale Neighbourhood

51 orlonSouth Richvale is a Neighbourhood within Richmond Hill. Richmond Hill has grown from its original little village beginnings in the1850's at the crossroads of what is now Yonge Street & Major Mackenzie Drive. The area has become a vibrant community, with over 152,000 population totalling some 45,000+ Residences (which includes Apartments). With this growing population residing within the town's boundaries, there is a wide range of parks, recreational & educational facilities & programs to satisfy even the most demanding.

Richmond Hill, is a town in York region, north of Toronto in southern Ontario, on the Little Don, Rouge, & Humber rivers. It is a suburb of Toronto & a commercial centre for the surrounding agricultural area. Major manufactures include printed materials, building supplies, and metal products.

westwoodThe area was first surveyed by Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe in 1794 while he was constructing Yonge Street. It was first settled by United Empire Loyalists & British settlers, and by 1801 it was known as Miles' Hill after Abner Miles, a prominent settler, & was afterwards Mt. Pleasant. According to local legend, it was re-named Richmond Hill when Charles Lennox, 4th Duke of Richmond, visited the area in 1820. However, it is more likely that it was renamed after a favourite song of one of the early settlers, The Lass of Richmond Hill. Richmond Hill was incorporated as a village in 1873, and as a town in 1957. It encompassed the other earlier settlements in the area, Oak Ridges, Langstaff & Elgin Mills.

The town's motto is En la rose, je fleuris (French for "Like the rose, I flourish"), reflecting either the motto of the Duke of Richmond, or the fact that the town was a centre of rose growing in the early 20th century. A more recent motto is A little north, a little nicer, in reference to the smaller, quieter lifestyle there as opposed to the metropolis of Toronto further south.
