JUST SOME OF THE JOYS OF STAYING IN AJAX
Ajax is located some 12 kilometres east of Toronto and is set in a beautiful area bordered by the Greenwood Conservation Area to the north, Duffins Creek to the west, Carruthers Creek to the east and Lake Ontario to the south. There’s a little something for everyone in Ajax whether you’re an entertainment fanatic, shopping lover, arts and history aficionado or an eco-adventurer. With over 100 restaurants, 3 theatres, 150 acres of parkland, 60 parks and playgrounds, 90 kilometres of trails and a plethora of sports amenities, it is clear that this Durham community is a great place to live and visit.
If you’re looking to get back to nature, there are plenty of outdoor adventures to experience and enjoy. The perfect example is the spectacular Ajax Waterfront – a gem of unspoiled beauty that spans six kilometres of parkland and stretches across the southern border of the town along the shores of Lake Ontario. Boasting natural and maintained areas with bridges spanning creeks, it is easily accessible to the public. Another example of access to nature is the Greenwood Conservation Area, which spans nearly 283 hectares of green space in the Duffins Creek Watershed. It offers some of the best fishing thanks to rainbow trout and other fish species that are present in the Duffins Creek.

Wildlife Encounters are Likely
Speaking of wild species, you should be aware of the fact that wildlife sightings are common throughout Ajax. Some of the species that are most frequently spotted throughout the town and surrounding areas include foxes, coyotes and white-tailed deer. Foxes are highly intelligent, though quite shy and nervous, they have adapted to living in areas of dense human population quite well. Coyotes, on the other hand, are timid animals that do not want much involvement with humans. They will become brazen once fed, which is why it is vital to remember never to feed wildlife. White-tailed deer are well-known to most Canadians and are very skittish. They can be particularly dangerous when scared or startled, so do your best to keep your distance from them at all times.
There are also plenty of nuisance wildlife species throughout Ajax and the surrounding areas, including squirrels, skunks and raccoons. While these animals are a very normal part of the fauna of any urban centre, they can still become a nuisance. Similar to other wildlife species, none of the aforementioned should be fed or approached for any reasons. This is because such actions will invite them to become accustomed to interactions with humans.
