No. 18: Central West Ajax

Average sale price: $745,691

The hub of Central West Ajax is Hermitage Park, a sprawling green space with manicured fields, wooded trails, outdoor exercise equipment and an off-leash dog park. On a recent Saturday afternoon, Little Leaguers were crowding the baseball diamond while a few guys shot hoops on the basket­ball court. The surrounding neighbourhood is a tight-knit bedroom community of handsome brick detached homes. There are a few nods to urbanity here and there—bike lanes on the major streets, small outdoor malls—but the area is mostly about quiet family life. Pickering High School, which has soaring EQAO scores, is located at the centre of the neighbourhood, right on the edge of the park.
