Helping you make the move in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby & Oshawa!
Ajax is part of Durham Region, one of the fastest growing areas of Ontario. The population of Ajax is close to 90,000, with hundreds of new homes being built every year. The Town has a vibrant business community as well, with over 1,500 businesses and a labour force of more than 41,000. Our retail sector includes a regional shopping centre at Harwood Ave. N. and Highway 2 (Kingston Rd.), along with many smaller outlets.
Residents enjoy a full range of excellent municipal services of city quality in a mid-sized town setting. We enjoy and strive to preserve a rich natural heritage, including waterways such as Duffins and Carruthers Creek and, most importantly, Lake Ontario. Ajax’s 6 k.m. of waterfront remain largely undeveloped for the enjoyment of everyone, with acres of parkland and natural areas.
As a rapidly-growing community, Ajax includes a vibrant mix of established and new neighbourhoods. The diversity of our population can be seen every day, and at regular community events such as Home Week, Ajax Family Festival and Pickering Village Fall Festival, among others.
No matter where you live in Ajax, you’ll want to check out our fabulous waterfront! Ajax takes great pride in its Lake Ontario waterfront, which is the longest undeveloped waterfront in the Toronto area. It is accessible to the public, with bridges spanning creeks, natural and maintained areas, and lots of walking/biking pathways.
With many kilometres of walking and bike trails along with park land, the waterfront is well used. At the foot of Harwood Ave. S. you will find Veterans' Point Gardens, dedicated to the HMS Ajax, the Royal Navy ship after which the Town was named. The Gardens are also dedicated to the Defence Industries Limited (DIL) plant and its workers that made this area their home during World War II.
The Gardens are a great place to learn some of our Town’s history and enjoy the lakefront. Continue west along the lakefront to find Rotary Park, site of many activities such as Music in the Park in the summer, Canada Day celebrations, and many other special activities. Rotary Park includes a playground and snack bar and it is also the entry point to a long-span bridge across Duffins Marsh where it enters the lake. Across the bridge, the pathway continues into the City of Pickering.
