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 nine notable hills you can hit up with your sled this winter…

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

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.

Notable for its night lighting, Linus Park, which is also known as Crestview Park, offers a wide slope and great views of downtown. Definitely worth the trek north.

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.

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.

Located at Ellis and the Queensway, Rennie Park is a Jack of all trades when it comes to winter sports. Here you’ll find a skating rink and hockey pad, in addition to a fairly steep hill that’s perfect for those looking for a thrilling ride.

If you happen to be in Scarborough and you’re in the mood for a rush, L’Amoreaux Park is home to a big hill that is typically a lot less crowded than some of the downtown spots.

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.
