LEARN MORE ABOUT AJAX

The Town of Ajax is home to more than 100,000 hard working and multicultural residents.

Ajax has a large amount of executive housing located along its waterfront. The houses on Lake Driveway enjoy spectacular waterfront views

The condominiums at the west end of Lake Driveway have many suites with waterfront exposures. You’ll also find a large selection of detached and semi-detached home as well as townhouses and apartment buildings, built during the 1970s and 80s in the south end of Ajax.

Just south of the 401 you will find a neighbourhood of homes built in the 40’s by the Canadian government to provide affordable housing for workers employed at military manufacturing plants. Most are smaller bungalows or 1-1/2 storey homes that are very affordable.

The rural areas just north of highway 401 started to be developed in the 80”s and 90’s with newer subdivisions popping up everywhere. Other previously rural areas in Ajax continue to be developed with subdivisions reaching Taunton Rd. in the north and Audley Rd. in the East.

Ajax has many attractive attributes including three community centres and four public golf courses, a large regional shopping centre and several smaller malls and shopping areas. The Pickering Village shopping district tucked away on Old Kingston Road features many interesting antique shops, and quaint restaurants.

One of the nicest parts of Ajax is its waterfront trail and parks. The 6 kilometre waterfront trail is paved and is popular with cyclists and joggers. This Waterfront Trail hooks-up with the Duffins Creek Trail system at the west end of Ajax and the Carruthers Creek Trail system at the east end of Ajax. The Greenwood Conservation Area located at the north end of town, off Westney Road is popular with hikers, and bird watchers, and includes picnic sites and camping grounds.

Getting around town is easy with Ajax Pickering Transit Authority operating eight regularly scheduled bus routes in Ajax, plus four school bus routes that operate during the school year only. Every Ajax bus route connects to the Ajax Go Station (100 Westney Road South). The Go Train ride to downtown Toronto’s Union Station takes roughly 45 minutes.

For motorists, Highway 401 on-ramps are quickly accessible north of downtown Ajax off Westney Road, and off Salem Rd. and highway 407 is now easily accessible with the recent opening of Highway 412.

As of the 2017/2018 the Durham District School Board offers 22 Public Elementary Schools ( 3 providing French Immersion) and 3 Public Secondary Schools ( 2 providing French Immersion). The Durham Catholic District School Board offers 9 Elementary schools and 2 Secondary schools. They also offer French Immersion at some of their schools.
