The best hills to go tobogganing in Toronto

Dec 22 2016, 12:06 am

Ah, tobogganing – it never gets old. (Even if you do.)

And while we may live in a concrete (and slush, and ice) jungle, there are still plenty of suitable slopes to get your fix. Indeed, going tobogganing in Toronto is much easier than spelling it.

Here are 9 hills to hit up with your sled this winter…

Riverdale park

A favourite of our editorial staff. Wide, steep, and #views for days.

Christie Pits

Variety’s the name of the game here, with three hills for your sledding pleasure to choose from. Nearby Bickford Park is also worth a mention.

Linus Park

Notable for its night lighting, Crestview Park offers a wide slope and great views of downtown. Definitely worth the trek north.

Earl Bales Park

The City of Toronto has banned tobogganing on this hill, which should give you an indication of how awesome it is. Give it a go. (But you didn’t hear it from us.)

Withrow Park

This one checks in at “above average” across all major metrics of a tobogganing hill with one significant advantage over the competition: a stairway.

Trinity Bellwoods

Location, location, location. Sure, there are better hills on the list, but none of them come close to matching the nearby amenities of Trinity Bellwoods.

Cedarvale Park

You have several hills to choose from here, and combining your trip with a stop at nearby Casa Loma is sure to invite some winter magic.

Gladhurst Park

This one’s for the thrill-seekers, with a winding slope and mild obstacles to encounter.

Lithuania Park

A hidden gem, this one. The slopes are fast and you’re just steps from even more wintery adventures in High Park. You can also take a short walk to the nearby Junction to take in the apres-toboggan scene.
