Nothing beats hitting the hills for some tobogganing right after a fresh snowfall. There is a lot of fun to be had by all, whether your mode of transport is the crazy carpet, vintage sled, or epic GT Snowracer. Here’s a list of the best hills in and around Brampton for tobogganing.
Nestled just off the 410 and Williams Parkway, Major Oaks was made for tobogganing. Its one of Brampton’s go-to’s and for good reason, the hill is perfect, you’ll be feeling the wind in your hair in no time.
Tobogganing at Chinguacousy Park is a staple for most Bramptonians growing up. It is a pretty great hill, and with amenities like the new skate trail open, you can take part in many winter activities in while you’re there.
If tobogganing hills could be rated like ski hills, Heart Lake would be packing the black diamond runs. It has hills for days, some big, some little. You can choose which is right for you.
Albion Hills is about 30 minutes away from Brampton, up through Caledon. With the lack of traffic up that way, it is sure to be a leisurely and scenic drive. Albion Hills doesn’t ever get too crowded so if you’d like some low-key tobaggoning on a huge hill, this is the place for you. They also have snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, so you can make a day of it.
Just a short 20 minute drive from Brampton. Centennial Park has a nice steep hill with a wide berth for hazard-free sledding. Some areas of the park are off-limits, so take note of that, but there’s still plenty of room for everyone. Once you’re good and finished, you can also grab a great bite from one of Etobicoke’s popular restaurants.
