Coming Soon to Pickering! Durham Live


Durham Live is anchored by The Casino District. This 40-acre site, directly connected to a GO Transit station, will feature more than 330,000 square feet of gaming space, a grand fountain and a hotel with more than 600 rooms.


The Durham Live site is expected to eventually also include a water park, an outdoor Amphitheatre, a performance hall, 150,000 square feet of retail space, restaurants, a movie theatre, a golf course and the largest film studio in the Greater Toronto Area.


TriBro Studios’ operations on the west side of the development will cover 15 acres and include: stages; production offices; post-production facilities; workshops; and areas responsible for hair and makeup, props, wardrobe and catering. The studio project is going through the site plan approval process now.


Durham Live will also have a residential component and the final piece of the development will be a large distribution centre on the western edge of the site. Durham Live is expected to create 10,000 wide-ranging jobs.

Lakeshore Waterfront Trail


The Pickering Waterfront Trail is primarily off-road or aligned along residential streets. A short stretch at the west end of the Trail is unpaved through an open space. Also, a stretch of Trail runs on Bayly Rd, a very busy regional roadway with concrete sidewalk on south side. Caution should be exercised. The recently completed Millennium Square at the foot of Liverpool Road has won awards for its beautiful design and Homeplace, at Alex Robertson Park, features the unique carvings of artist Dorsey James.


The Trail through Pickering is divided into three named sections. First Nations Trail (3.5 km) is the western leg from Rouge River to the west shore of Frenchman’s Bay. Monarch Trail (4.7 km) surrounds Frenchman’s Bay and ends at Millennium Square. Peak Trail runs from Millennuim Square to the eastern border with Ajax. Each name has a historical or environmental significance. First Nations recognizes native settlements from the past and the significance the Rouge and the Lake played in their location. Monarch recognizes the monarch butterfly and its yearly migration to the Bay from the south. Peak is one of Pickering’s earliest settlers.
