The Prosperous City of Pickering .

If you’ve been east of Toronto lately, you may have noticed that the City of Pickering has transformed quite a bit and is quickly becoming the new place to be in Durham. Pickering’s population is growing, and the number of attractions is growing with it. 

Aspen Ridge Homes has recognized that this is a perfect place for new families, young couples and first-time homebuyers to settle down. They should feel right at home in New Seaton, a large yet friendly community that, once complete, will flourish in North Pickering. Beautiful townhomes and stylish detached homes will be available. 

Pickering is filled with premium amenities, excellent schools, shopping centres, recreational facilities and plenty of restaurants and entertainment options. Whether you’re a permanent Pickering resident, just visiting, or thinking of moving in, the city has something to offer everyone all year round.

Here are just some of the things to see and do in Pickering:


One great thing to note about the wonderful city of Pickering is the community outreach. City Hall, the Pickering Library and the Pickering Recreation Complex are all located in the heart of the city and offer various programs throughout the year.

Outdoor activities

If you are a bit of an adventurer, Pickering is home to plenty of outdoors areas where people can camp, fish and more. Part of a 900 kilometre network of trails spreading all across Lake Ontario, the Waterfront Trail in Pickering offers a great route perfect for cycling, or simply strolling along the beautiful greenery.


The Pickering Town Centre is one of Pickering’s most exciting shopping attractions. With over 200 plus stores, it is always expanding to provide the best shopping experience. It’s also home to Famous Players, Moxie’s, Jack Astor’s and a soon-to-be Pickle Barrel.


Residents enjoy the luxury of having many transportation options to choose from. The newly constructed pedestrian-and-cyclist bridge that spans 250 metres connects commuters to GO Transit and Durham Region Transit. The additional parking and increased service has made it way more user-friendly.
