I would describe Pickerington as a great place to live! It is clean, and diverse with all walks of life. There are plenty of walking and biking trails to help you get around and enjoy nature.

Pickerington is my hometown but it is not somewhere I would like to stay. There are very great schools and nice people. There are several job opportunities for not only adults but teenagers as well. There are many good choices as you will not grow tired of the same ones. Pickerington is located about 15 minutes outside of Columbus and is bordered by the cuties of Reynoldsburg, Canal Winchester and Baltimore.
Pickerington isn't a super exciting place but it's nice and relatively clean, and close enough to Columbus that if you're looking for more exciting things to do it's well within your ability to go out and do them. The population is generally upper-middle class but there is some socio-economic diversity, and racial diversity is on the rise but it is still primarily white. It's a relatively safe place and it's common to see kids playing out in their yards and walking in groups to their local pools or parks for an afternoon out of the house. We host things like the Violet Festival and we have holiday celebrations that keep the community engaged and invested with one another. All in all, it's a quiet but neat place to live.
