Passive/Open Spaces

Pickering is home to a number of open, green spaces; some with benches perfect for picnicking or relaxing while taking in the views-and others left to the wild. Some of these parks provide play structures for children to keep active while Mom and Dad relax. For those who want a park experience without the cheers of the sports fans, these are the places to visit. Come on out and enjoy nature at its best!
