Once the snow covers Toronto, we’re hitting the hills. Well, the tobogganing hills, that is. We’ve got a flurry of snow headed our way this winter and there’s no better way to take advantage than with an afternoon outdoors. Get active and enjoy the winter fun at any of these amazing spots around the city.
Here are 10 of the best tobogganing hills in Toronto and the GTA.
This killer hill comes complete with amazing views of the city skyline. The swoops is pretty steep, so it’s good for all you thrill-seekers out there. Plus, there’s the nearby Roosters Coffee House for all your warm beverage needs afterward. We recommend stopping by at sunset to make the most of the location.
Where: 375 Sumach St, Toronto
Another great (and steep) Toronto hill sits at the north-end of Christie Pits Park. This spot is not for the faint of heart. No seriously, there’s really no easing into this one. So if you looking for a rush, this is the hill for you.
Where: 750 Bloor St W, Toronto
If you’d like a tamer tobogganing experience, head on over to Trinity Bellwoods. The conveniently located, centre-Toronto park has the perfect area for a light downhill trek. This one’s fun for little ones or those who don’t like too much wind in their hair.
Where: 790 Queen St W, Toronto
Head on over to the east end to take advantage of this amazing hill. It’s just off of the Danforth, so there are tons of nearby restaurants and coffee shops to hit up when you’re done. You’re sure to work up an appetite for takeout after an afternoon outside!
Where: 1949 Danforth Ave, Toronto
If you’re located on the west end of the city, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered too. Just north of the popular High Park (which you sadly are not allowed to toboggan at), lies this amazing spot. The 2.2-hectare area is great for getting outside and swooshing through the air.
Where: 155 Oakmount Rd, Etobicoke
Friends in Etobicoke can hit up the popular Humber Valley Park for their tobogganing needs. The spot sits on a 3.2 hectares of land. Plus, it’s also got an outdoor ice rink, in case you want to check off all your winter sports in one go.
Where: 54 Anglesey Blvd, Etobicoke
Moving on over to North York, we’ve got the expansive Sunnybrook Park. This place has so many different nooks and crannies, you won’t know where to start. It spans a whopping 154 hectares. Yes, you read that correctly. Within the massive area, you’ll find plenty of great slopes for rushing downhill.
Where: 1132 Leslie St, North York
Another North York location is Linus Park. Although this spot’s a little smaller, it’s still just as fun. Stop by for tobogganing in the winter then come back in the spring to take advantage of their many bike trails.
Where: 125 Seneca Hill Dr, North York
If you’re located in Scarborough, you can stop by the not-so-hidden gem, L’Amoreaux. This spot’s got a longer hill than most, so you can really take in all the scenery. Plus, tons of other onsite amenities.
Where: 1900 McNicoll Ave, Scarborough
Last but not least, we’ve got Chapman Park in Richmond Hill. This one may be outside the city, but we promise it’s a worthy competitor. Hit it up for an afternoon of slipping and sliding the day away.
Where: 23 Misty Moor Dr, Richmond Hill
So bundle up and check out all the amazing tobogganing hills the Toronto area has got to offer. We know we’ll be penciling an outdoor afternoon into our calendars!
