Nestled on Lake Ontario's shores, Pickering offers lots to explore - farms and hamlets built by settlers and the natural history of the surrounding forests that mark the northernmost reach of Canada's Carolinian bio-zone. Pickering's neighbourhoods include a new paradigm of national park - the world's largest urban park (Rouge National Urban Park), a beachfront boardwalk and marina along our sandy shores, Seaton's dramatically beautiful valley, and distinctive villages such as Green River, Claremont and Whitevale.
