Mill Pond is a park area located just north of Major Mackenzie Drive, east of Yonge St and downtown Richmond Hill that is surrounded by heritage estate homes and limited amount of older charming homes that are slowly undergoing revitalization. The park is the favorite spot of many Richmond Hill residents. There are many walking trails and the park is home to a variety of wildlife species, including ducks, swans, racoons, geese, and beavers. Every year, Mill Pond is home to the Richmond Hill Winter and Summer Carnivals.
Although Mill Pond is only one part of Central Richmond Hill, its name is often used to describe an area of desirable homes, including those of "Heritage Estates", and a neighbourhood which is a great place to live. The community is set in a nature like setting, well-maintained and mature and highly sought by home buyers. In recent years it has improved roads with curbs and many amenities which were not present before and is considered as one of the jewel areas of Richmond Hill real estate.
