Location and environment

The predominant feature of the city's location, as its name depicts, is its elevation over bordering areas. Thousands of years earlier throughout the last ice age, glaciers relocating southerly instructions accumulated a substantial amount of planet in front of them which they moved forward as they expanded. Over time, as the temperature rose, the growth of the glaciers minimized and at some point, they began to decline to what is now known as the polar ice cap. The planet that had been gathered by the glacier's movement remained in place and the elevated area that remained makes up today Richmond Hill. The irregular melting of the glacier that created the city has resulted in a very diverse geography within the city's borders, resulting in features such as the Oak Ridges Moraine, minor tributaries, and kettle lakes.
