Let's Explore Richmond Hill - Russell Farm Park

This park space at Bayview and Bantry is not a huge, but reminds us of what was here before the residential developments were imposed on this area of Town.

It is a nice place to stop and reflect. You might want to stop after intense shopping an intersection over at High Tech Rd.

There is plenty of parking off Bantry.
