Bowmanville is the central town in Clarington, which is a collection of vibrant small communities (including Courtice, Newcastle Village, Orono). All of these communities are surrounded by scenic countryside and are favoured by cyclists.  Clarington captures the spirit of a small town without sacrificing the amenities of a larger city and balances urban services with small town appeal and is close to both Toronto and cottage country.

Clarington features recreational opportunities for all ages: 2 indoor and 3 outdoor swimming pools, 5 arenas with 7 ice pads total, 6 golf courses, 3 driving ranges, 93 parks, and 1 indoor soccer / outdoor lacrosse facility.  In the winter, you can ski at Brimacombe. Mosport International Speedway is a great place to take in a race or even participate in a track day.  Families always enjoy picking seasonal produce and outdoor activities at Pingle's or Watson Farms or can visit either the Bowmanville Zoo or Jungle Cat World if they want to take a walk on the wild side!
