Pickering Real Estate
Pickering is a city that has a spot for everyone. Whether you want a home in a more remote area in the country, a place right in the middle of the city, or something in between; Pickering has it. The GO Station helps people travel easily to Union Station, as well as U of T Scarborough and York University, making it a great city for commuters.
Pickering’s best feature is, by far, its gorgeous waterfront, down Liverpool Road. This area boasts quaint shops and boutiques, as well as delicious food. The paths are great for running and walking and the playground and splash pad are great for young children.
Pickering is a terrific place for families. Between the mall, movie theatre (which is expanding to include a VIP theatre), waterfront and various festivals, there is always something to do.
Pickering is one of Ontario’s fastest growing communities. With the Ontario Power Generation at its core, Pickering boasts a thriving economy. This is a city that is moving on to bigger and better things. The Nuclear Power Generating Plant is set to start decommissioning in 2020, making way for new technologies to power the province.
Fun Facts: Pickering is actually larger than most people realize since it makes a ‘U’ shape around Ajax. Everything North of Concession 5 is actually Pickering, not Ajax. Also, Pickering is known as “The Oakville of the East.”
