New Pickering Heritage and Community Centre 

As the first new community centre in Pickering in the last 18 years, this project has the opportunity to encompass Pickering’s rich heritage, while looking forward to the next generation. Located at the entrance to the Pickering Museum Village, the new building will bring together the museum, library and community centre into one dynamic facility.

Thank you for your input! The Open House Consultations were a success and we can't wait to share more details about this new facility in the next few months. To stay updated, please register to the PMV eNewsletter
