A RICH AND BIODIVERSE ECOSYSTEM
10,000 years ago, when the glaciers retreated from Southern Ontario, they left behind a stunning landscape we know today as the Oak Ridges Moraine. This is a rich and biodiverse ecosystem comprised of charming kettle lakes, flowery meadows, lush woodlands, rustic trails and wetlands teeming with wildlife and birds. As a 400-acre backyard for Richmond Hill, the Oak Ridges Moraine offers incredible hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and birdwatching in summer and crosscountry skiing and snow shoeing in winter. This natural paradise is the ultimate health club for all residents of Oakridge Meadows.MAP OF OAK RIDGES MORAINE TRAIL MAP OF OAK RIDGES MORAINE
