The Humberlands is a great neighbourhood in the north west corner of Richmond Hill.  This neighbourhood is very conveniently located with a short drive to the 400 or the 404 (highways if you are not familiar with the area.) as well as shopping.  It has a Catholic and a public elementary school on...
