Ajax Neighbourhoods - Pickering Village

The community of Pickering Village is, somewhat confusingly, located in Ajax. Originally growing within Pickering Township in 1807, and incorporated as the Village of Pickering in 1953, the community became a part of Ajax in 1974 when the Regional Municipality of Durham was created, and changed its name to Pickering Village to avoid confusion with the City of Pickering. The community is located just north of the Highway of Heroes and east of the main branch of Duffins Creek. In addition to its convenient access to the Trans-Canada Trail, Pickering Village is home to Lincoln Alexander Public School and Pickering High School, both quite close to the soccer field, baseball diamond, basketball court, and playground at Hermitage Park. But of course, the best part of Pickering Village is that it puts you in a friendly primarily-residential community with convenient access to all the ammenities of Ajax, and a short drive away from the buzz of Toronto!
