Thanks to its location along Lake Ontario, Ajax enjoys a spectacular waterfront. Its lakeside Rotary Park draws lots of families to its lively beach, playground and pavilion. The town also has a rich heritage, which is reflected in its historic sites and landmarks. Veterans Point Garden, for example, is a memorial to commemorate the town’s naval history and contributions in World War II.
St. Francis Centre for Community Arts and Culture is another delightful fusion of 19th century and modern architectures. The historic Pickering Village, on the other hand, is an original Quaker settlement from the 1800’s, which now offers a lively shopping and culinary experience. The town also has its bustling Casino Ajax where you can try your luck on over 800 OLG Slot Machines.
Ajax is surrounded by Pickering to the west and Whitby to the east. If you’re a daily commuter, you could possibly take Highway 401, Kingston Road and Taunton Road (the town’s two major arteries) to be connected to the rest of the Durham Region and the GTA.
