North Richmond Hill was a planned community back in the 1800s in response to overcrowding in Manhattan. It features many unique, beautiful Queen Anne Victorian homes that were built at this time, with elaborate properties that have become historic landmarks. More modern developments tend to be uniform in nature, and there are townhouses, apartments and condos as well as single family homes in the area.

Areas like Jamaica and Liberty Avenues tend to have mixed residential and commercial use buildings. The area is mostly urban grid pattern, and flat in nature. Busy Jamaica Avenue runs through the centre of the community and curves in one area. There is an elevated train track providing public transportation to the area that runs above Jamaica Avenue. All areas have sidewalks for pedestrians walking pets, and as long as your dog is comfortable with lots of vehicle and pedestrian traffic, you can enjoy walking him throughout the neighborhood.

Forest Park is located on the northside of Richmond Hill with 165 acres of trees and many small hills. The park offers numerous walking trails for residents to enjoy with their dogs, but some trails are shared with equestrians and bicycles so be cautious!  If you are looking for a dedicated dog friendly area, there is an off-leash dog park located within Forest Park where your dog can enjoy some free play with other local canines.

Other parks in the area include Phil "Scooter" Rizzuto Park which has sports fields and green areas while Lt. Frank McConnell Memorial Park provides a small green area to rest in the shade on hot humid days. Jacob Riis Triangle and Jayne Carlson Triangle are created by roadways running off at angles and also provide small, green spaces for locals to rest in a shady area with their dog while walking the North Richmond Hill neighbourhood.
