The City of Pickering is updating its Parkland By-law

​​​​​​​​​​​​Parkland is a key part of all healthy and complete communities. As our City continues to grow, we will need to provide more parkland to meet the needs of our residents.

​​In accordance with the Planning Act, the City has prepared a Parkland By-law that requires developers to provide a certain amount of land on their sites for parkland​ (parkland dedication) or alternatively, provide a payment-in-lieu that will be used to acquire parkland elsewhere in the City.
