You’re so ready for Lake Effect Living – an inspired outdoor lifestyle close to the shores of Lake Ontario. Ajax is a unique place where people, nature, and history connect. It’s a progressive, diverse and vibrant, waterfront community. With an ideal location where you can enjoy all that nature has to offer as well as modern conveniences like shopping, dining, and transit, it’s easy to see why Ajax is one of the best places to call home.

Enrich your lifestyle

Welcome home to Ajax – a proud Great Lakes community, boasting an environment-first philosophy. With a rich history and vibrant future, there is no shortage of things to do.

Surround yourself with nature

Enjoy a quick stroll or a long-distance biking adventure on the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail. Stretching over 3600km, this signed route of interconnecting roads and off-road trails joins over 150 communities including Ajax. In addition to the parks along the Waterfront Trail, nature lovers will love exploring the Greenwood Conservation Area. The trails are marked with signage that not only leads the way, but also tells visitors about the wildlife and heritage of the area. Here you can go hiking, cross-country skiing, enjoy a picnic lunch, and even go fishing for rainbow trout along the creek.

Prefer the water? Enjoy a sunny afternoon at the beach at Paradise Park. There are also tennis courts and a playground available for use. Located at the mouth of Duffins Creek, Rotary Park is a major focal point of the Waterfront Trail. Here you can play on the beach or fish along the banks of Lake Ontario. If you want to get out on the water, there’s a small boat launch ready for your canoe or kayak.

Avid golfers will be pleased to find some great places to play a round in Ajax. You have your choice of the Deer Creek Golf Club, Annandale Golf & Curling Club, or the family-run Carruther’s Creek Golf and Country Club.

Family fun

Ready to host your next event? Look no further than the Carruthers Marsh Pavilion. Located on the eastern side of the Ajax Waterfront, this 1,518 square foot pavilion is the perfect venue. It can host up to 64 people, is fully accessible, and has everything you need including tables and chairs. Let the party flow outdoors with the park and splash pad ready to continue your fun.

Enjoy an abundance of sports, entertainment, and lifestyle amenities close to you. Take the kids to soccer or hockey practice at the Ajax Community Centre or let them run wild on the playground at Lakeside Park. While they’re at practice, you can enjoy the waterfront trail that cuts through different landscape environments providing excellent wildlife viewing opportunities.

Let the kids be kids (or be a kid again yourself) at Endless Fun. This massive indoor playground features a three-level play structure complete with slides, mazes, and a spider climb.

Shop ‘til you drop

Just minutes from home, you’ll find a variety of stores, boutiques, cafes, salons, and services to enrich your life and make it meaningful. Go into Downtown Ajax to enjoy a show, a fine meal, or simply stroll the vibrant streets. Shop ‘til you drop at the nearby Pickering Town Centre, an expansive indoor shopping centre with big-box retail, ample food-court options, and a variety of brand name clothing stores.
