WHAT’S NEW

ALL THE PARK AMENITIES ARE JUST A CLICK AWAY

We have more exciting news! We’ve just launched a brand new Interactive Map of the David Dunlap Observatory Park. Not only will this new map allow you to browse all the incredible features the Park has to offer, but each feature also has its own unique video.

A LOCAL STAR

Anyone who's ever visited the David Dunlap Observatory knows it's an incredibly special place. Not only is it strikingly beautiful, it also carries an aura that's almost surreal; perhaps that's why it was chosen to be a star, -in the figurative sense of course. In 1960 the film "Universe" was released by the National Film Board of Canada, and was met with much praise. It was nominated for an Oscar in the 'best documentary' category the year it was released, and offered some of the most vivid special effects anyone had ever seen....

THESE ASTRONOMY PROGRAMS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD

Great news for all stargazers! The David Dunlap Observatory is now open to the public and is hosting a series of programs all summer long.

THE SUCCESS OF DOORS OPEN RICHMOND HILL

This last Saturday, Observatory Hill presented Doors Open Richmond Hill and it was a smash hit for both the community, the David Dunlap Observatory, and all who attended! There were over 1,200 people at the event, creating ample foot traffic for all of our sales centres.

Over the course of the day, everyone filled out their raffle entries to win a Cosmic Membership to the Ontario Science Centre valued at $1,000. As each builder had their own separate ballot box, every builder saw a huge uptick in foot traffic throughout the whole day.

Visitors not only got to experience the majesty of the largest telescope in Canada, but they also enjoyed touring the DDO park grounds and getting to try all the food and ice cream available to Doors Open Richmond Hill attendees.

Also, at the Sales Centres, visitors really got a kick out of engaging with the touchscreens and witnessing the interactive plans detailing the future of the David Dunlap Observatory Park. In addition to all that great news, the event itself benefited a great deal from the inclusion of Observatory Hill noting an increase in expected guests.

The winner of the raffle will be announced on Tuesday, May 14th, 2019. But more than that we, the entire Observatory Hill team, are thrilled at the turn-out we had for Doors Open Richmond Hill that we had over the weekend. We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who made it happen, everyone who attended, and to all the builders as well.
