    Youth Area - Design Underway
    We're planning to create a unique space for youth (ages 13 to 19) at the south end of Lake Wilcox Park. It is expected to include a skatepark, 4 beach volleyball courts, 2 multi-use courts for basketball, futsal soccer and ball hockey, fitness equipment, wifi access and space to hang out and socialize.

    We want this park to be a fun and exciting space that teens can enjoy. In order to achieve this, we got feedback from more than 300 Richmond Hill teens and their parents through an online survey, information booths and workshops.

    The proposed design was presented at a public open house on June 9. Residents were also able to review and comment online. The comment period is now closed and we are reviewing all of the feedback received. Thank you to everyone who participated.
