Anyone still in the mood to embrace our ongoing winter? One of our favourite ways to beat the winter blahs is to get immersed in the snow and do activities that are only possible during this season. Once such activity is tobogganing. We've catalogue our top spots to enjoy this thrilling seasonal sport, let us know your favourite spots in the comments!
1. Riverdale Park East (550 Broadview Ave, Toronto)
Riverdale Park East comes complete with glorious views of the city skyline. Plus, there’s the nearby Roosters Coffee House for all your warm beverage needs afterward. Be warned, the hill is steep and makes for a good work out to get back to the top! Stop by at sunset to make the most of the location.
2. East Lynn Park (1949 Danforth Ave, Toronto)
Head on over to the Danforth to take advantage of this amazing hill.There are so tons of spots close by to grab food and something warm to drink when you’re done.
3. Humber Valley Park (54 Anglesey Blvd, Etobicoke)
Friends in Etobicoke can hit up the popular Humber Valley Park for tobogganing fun. The spot sits on 3.2 hectares of land. It even has an outdoor ice rink, in case you want to check off all your winter sports in one go.
4. Lithuania Park (155 Oakmount Rd, Etobicoke)
