Exploring the neighbourhood
Pickering is a bustling multicultural community on the shores of Lake Ontario, less than 40 km from downtown Toronto. Three exciting additions are coming to our neighbourhood: the city is building a combined seniors-youth recreation centre, a central library, and a 600-seat performing arts centre, all located right across the street. Amenities like health care services and popular shopping destinations, including Pickering Town Centre, are a few minutes away. Just outside your door, you can enjoy our landscaped grounds, complete with a dining patio, gazebo and raised garden boxes.
