Whether there’s just a tiny bit of snow or a huge dump, we’re always excited to pull out that sled.

As Vancouver braces for a big dump of snow this weekend, we’ve compiled a few of our favourite sledding spots.

Here are 11 places to go sledding in Metro Vancouver.

While you might not be able to see any of the beautiful plants or flowers Queen Elizabeth has to offer because of the snow, there are plenty of hills that make for great sledding. Just be careful of potential traffic near some of the hills.

Where: 4600 Cambie Street, Vancouver

China Creek North Park

Located just off of Great Northern Way near Clark Drive, China Creek North Park is neatly tucked away, meaning potentially less competition.

There’s also China Creek South Park, but it’s not as good for sledding.

Where: 1001 East 7th Avenue, Vancouver


Burnaby Mountain

You can’t have a conversation about sledding without including Burnaby Mountain in the mix. However, full disclosure, the City of Burnaby strongly advises against this as the “steep slopes produce conditions for people to pick up high speeds and obstacles such as rocks and trees create unsafe conditions for tobogganing and sledding.”

Where: 100 Centennial Way, Burnaby

Ron McLean Park

Ron McLean Park is a community park with tons of sporting amenities. Unfortunately, most of those amenities, like courts and fields, are covered in snow.

That snow makes for a great park for sledding. Just avoid skating on the ice as it’s not permitted.

Where: 7820 Hedley Avenue, Burnaby

Robert Burnaby Park

Robert Burnaby, the man that the city was named after, has a park named after him as well. When it snows, Robert Burnaby Park has some excellent spots to get your thrills on a sled.

Where: 8155 Wedgewood Street, Burnaby

New Westminster

Queen’s Park

Queen’s Park in New West is quite large and not as populated as some of the other parks when it comes to sledding in Metro Vancouver.

Where: 3rd Avenue, New Westminster


Unwin Park

For what it’s worth, some have taken to Google reviews to call Unwin Park the best hill in Surrey for sledding in the winter.

Where: 13313 68th Avenue, Surrey


Diefenbaker Park

While it’s beautiful in the summer, Diefenbaker Park boasts steep hills that are perfect for sledding in the winter.

Where: 5575 1st Avenue, Delta
