Devonsleigh is a family oriented neighbourhood situated in the northeast part of Richmond Hill. This neighbourhood looks like your typical suburban subdivision with wide streets and sidewalks and a fairly uniform housing stock consisting of brick houses with garages figuring prominently in the design. The signature street in the neighbourhood is Devonsleigh Boulevard which winds its way east from Yonge Street all the way north to 19th Avenue. The Rouge River runs through this neighbourhood which has an elevated topography shaped by the Oak Ridges Moraine. The Newbury Park Wetland situated right in the middle of the neighbourhood is a wonderful conservation initiative enjoyed by residents.
Neighbourhood landmarks include: Richmond Hill High School, TMS School Elgin Mills campus, Holy Trinity School, Century Private School, Harrington Park, Dove Park, Leno Park, Upper Yonge Place, North Elgin Centre, Imagine Cinemas, and the Mon Sheong and Elginwood Long Term Care centres.
