Crime rates are beginning to rise in certain areas of Ajax. Living further away from Pickering will prevent interactions with gang-related activity. Although the downtown areas may be unappealing, there are many beautiful conservation areas near most home clusters. The city’s location is also ideal for those interested in the suburban experience, but may have to commute to Toronto for work.

Ajax, Ontario, is a wonderful city. A great part about it is that it is a very suburban area; it is not a metropolis like Toronto, nor is it a rural area. There are many parks and conservation areas in it as well but the best part about Ajax is that it is right next to Lake Ontario.

Visitors to Ajax should know it is a suburb located close to Toronto. Most of its denizens commute to the city for work. It has a number of green spaces and excellent restaurants, among other amenities. it’s only drawback is its punishingly cold winters, but that is true of Canada in general.

People should consider moving to Ajax because it is a beautiful and safe place. Ajax’s crime rates are so low there is barely any crime. The parks are always in tip top shape as they are always kept up to date and cleaned. The grass is always cut by the people who work for Ajax and the schooling is great.
