We like to walk our dog here. We have also launched the canoe a few times on Duffin's Creek. Really nice spot. Usually busy on fri-sat-sun, especially on long weekends. You have the option the rent picnic areas for larger groups or party's. The waterfront trail passes through from Pickering into Whitby and so on. There is a large splash... More

Best park for walking, biking etc. No motorized vehicles allowed on the trail. Great for a family outing or just an easy walk in nature. Groomed area with playground for the kids. 5 mins until in nature surrounded by birds and squirrels.

Great place to spend the day, either with a camera or with young children for their playground visit. A lovely walk across the bridge of Duffins Creek.

Rotary is a great place to go for a walk alone or with your dog. My dog use to love going out there during all seasons. With trail way and access to the beach we put on a lot of miles. You can reach the boardwalk and walk along the beach. Now I do it alone but still enjoy it... More

One can stay in the river if the lake is rough. That is where the launch is. Great creek to run up. One can almost make it to Highway #2 if the water level is high. Great birds, beavers, cranes and other animals to watch. 2 large ponds to explore as well. sandy beach and good place to swim from.... More

Rotary park is nicely situated on the edge of Lake Ontario, offering a fresh breeze in the heat of the summer and Often the town offers entertainment and festivals in the large grassy area. Go further east within walking distance and see the monuments describing the history and settling of the town of Ajax in its importance in World War... More

Rotary Park is a very pretty and clean park. They have a splash pad for young children. However it is very busy. We were there for a work picnic, as we started to barbeque, park security came around and asked us if we had a permit. Apparently you are not allowed to barbeque without a permit. Even if you do...

This is our number 1 spot in Ajax to visit. The trail is accessible for bike, skates, walking, jogging. Rotary park is great for the family, whether in the lake, at the park, or in the splash park. For quiet relaxation, travel further along the trail from rotary park to find a quiet bench to rest, a picnic and enjoy... More
