Your City Bus Tour is Back!
The City of Pickering is offering a free, 1-day bus tour for Pickering residents 18 years of age and older.
The Your City Bus Tour is taking place on Saturday, October 14, 2017, from 10 am to 5 pm, departing from, and arriving back to, Pickering City Hall.
The tour will showcase some of the facilities, services, and projects that impact the community and the everyday lives of residents, like Seaton, City Centre, and various economic, environmental, and cultural goals. Stops include the Pickering Public Library, Rouge National Urban Park, and Pickering Museum Village, where lunch will be served.
New this year – the tour will wrap up with a Party in the Park with Tom Thomson event, taking place at the Dr. Nelson F. Tomlinson Community Centre.

Born in Pickering’s Hamlet of Claremont, Tom was a significant influencer of the Group of Seven, and event-goers will get the opportunity to celebrate his life through music, stories, nature, food.
