FAQ | Photos | Map


Held annually in the Town of Richmond Hill since 1998, Mill Pond Splash is a unique eco festival that offers hands-on educational activities that motivate and encourage the public to make positive environmental changes in many spheres of their lives. Visitors gain an increased appreciation for the natural environment, the challenges facing the Don River watershed, and the solutions that we can all implement.

As the only annual eco festival in the Town of Richmond Hill, Mill Pond Splash provides an important opportunity for community associations, environmental NGOs, and local companies to promote their environmental efforts and encourage the public to become involved. Thousands of local residents have flocked to Mill Pond Splash over the last fifteen years to participate in the wide array of environmental education activities.

Mill Pond Splash is coordinated by a diverse range of people and organizations, including, the Town of Richmond Hill, the Don Watershed Regeneration Council, Evergreen, The Living City Foundation, and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).
