Russell Tilt, a Past President of our society, also has a Richmond Hill park named in his honour! The Russell Tilt Park is located at the northeast corner of Regatta Avenue and Blackforest Drive, west of Yonge Street.
In conjunction with Evergreen Brick Works, a national charity, our society members occasionally have the opportunity to participate in a tree stewardship event at the Russell Tilt Park during late summer.
This tree stewardship event includes maintaining planted trees and shrubs by mulching and weeding. Evergreen events are a great opportunity to contribute to the local community and create beautiful green spaces for enjoyment throughout the community. Evergreen provides all the necessary equipment and training, offers assistance where needed and provides water and snacks throughout the event.
Evergreen Brick Works did not organize an event in Russell Tilt Park during 2018 - 2021, but may schedule one in 2022. Please check back in summer 2022. For information about Evergreen Brick Works, please click here.
