Only a few blocks from Canada's busiest highway, Pickering's waterfront community beckons. Take a break from the rush of urban living to discover quaint shops and cafes and the aromas of fresh baking, or your favourite flavour of ice cream.
Visit the Nautical Village website and download our guide to the Shops & Eateries of Pickering 's Nautical Village. For local activities, view our calendar, and for a quick tour of the neighbourhood, watch this episode of Escapes with Nigel.
Traveling by yacht, sailboat, fishing boat or power boat? Dock up at one of Pickering's marinas or visit our Frenchman's Bay Yacht Club to discover how you can take advantage of a membership. Other marinas ready to serve you include: Frenchman's Bay Marina, Swans Marina, Wharf Street Marina
Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Waterfront Trail or bring a chair and enjoy a sunset concert at Millennium Square. On summer days, the kids can cool off in the splash pad, or swing, climb and slide in the park. Volleyball nets stand ready on the beach, so get your friends together and bring a ball!
Looking for something more active? Pick up a paddle and launch your canoe, kayak or wind sail and enjoy the breezes on Frenchman's Bay. Enjoy good food and friends, as you watch the yachts hoist their sails and set out to Lake Ontario.
