Bayview Hill Community Park Revitalization Masterplan

Plans are underway for the revitalization of Bayview Hill Community Park located at 114 Spadina Road. We are developing a master plan that will be implemented over several phases. We have proposed two options for your review and comments. Please use the parks design comment form or email to provide all your comments and suggestion. We will be accepting comments until Sunday, September 19, 2021.

Our proposed plans provide a graphical representation of the overall design intent. They are not final and will be subject to change pending input from the public and City staff.  Specific features and elements will be finalized during future phases.   

Email Project Manager, John Tiberio for more information or call him at 905-747-6389.

During Curbside Giveaway Days, residents are invited to place unwanted items, labeled FREE, at the curb for other residents and community members to browse and take for their own use, free of charge.

This is a great opportunity to declutter and find a new home for your unwanted items, while also picking up something you may want or need for free.

Anything remaining must be brought back inside by 5 p.m. For more information, visit

Responsible Pet Ownership

Pet owners in Richmond Hill must follow our local rules and regulations to ensure pets are properly cared for, loved and a welcome part of the community. Follow local by-laws to be a responsible owner, a good neighbour and to show proper care for your pet.

Pet owners who fail to comply with by-law regulations may be ticketed and fined.

As a pet owner in Richmond Hill you must:

  • Stoop and Scoop – pick up any mess made by your pet and place it in the correct waste container.
  • Keep your pet on a leash whenever you are in a public area, unless you are at an official off leash dog area.
  • License your dog every year and make sure they always wear a collar with the license attached.
