The City of Pickering is a vibrant and growing community in Durham Region. Located just 40 kilometres east of downtown Toronto, Pickering offers a unique blend of the urban and rural. The historically designated village of Whitevale and picturesque villages of Greenwood, Cherrywood, Claremont and Brougham in north Pickering reflect the pastoral qualities of the area while being only minutes away from a wide array of shopping, entertainment and dining choices.
Situated on the shores of Lake Ontario, Pickering continues to be a waterfront refuge for those wanting to escape city life. From east or west, come to Pickering by taking a leisurely drive along the old Heritage Highway (Highway 2), Ontario's historic route. Pickering is also directly accessible via Highway 401 in the south and by the newly expanded Highway 407 in the north. Visit us in Pickering, there's something for everyone.
