Best Local Sledding Hills

We’re lucky to have so much natural beauty and variety where we live, and there’s no reason not to take advantage of our landscape throughout the winter months as well. Below is a list of the best local tobogganing hills for sledders of all ages. Remember to stay safe, and above all have fun!



Oakville

Old Abbey Lane Park: Conveniently next to Abbey Lane Public School, this park features three hills without any trees nearby, minimizing the risk of casualties and boo-boos.

Location: 1110 Old Abbey Lane, Oakville, ONL6M 1C1

Oxford Avenue & Upper Middle: This is a great “bunny hill” that small children can easily walk up themselves.

Location:  Southeast corner in the public green space area

Bronte Creek Provincial Park: The park’s huge double sided hill is great for kids of all ages - the $16 day pass is worth it! There is also has a skating rink available, weather permitting.

Location: 1219 Burloak Drive, Oakville, ONL7R 3X5

Appleby College: This one has been a crowd favourite for over 40 years! This enormous hill is open for public use on the school grounds right on the shore of Lake Ontario.

Location: 540 Lakeshore Road West, Oakville, ONL6K 1G5


Mississauga

Brookmede Park: Here we have another hill that’s well-suited to smaller children, as it’s not too steep and offers plenty of room to slow down.

Location: Major intersection is Dundas & Erin Mills Parkway,L5L 1B7

Erindale Park: This hill’s unique bowl shape makes climbing back up a walk in the park for young sledders!

Location: 1695 Dundas Street West, Mississauga, ONL4X 1L7

 

Castlebridge School: With a long slope and no obstacles in the way, this hill offers a prime tobogganing experience.

Location: 2801 Castlebridge Dr, Mississauga, ONL5M 5J9

Birchwood Park: This long and steep hill with a clear landing space is Clarkson’s best kept secret - besides Sutton Quantum, of course!

Location:  1547 Lakeshore Rd W, Mississauga, ON L5J 4T4

Rattray Marsh: Located right behind Green Glade Public School, Rattray Marsh’s hill is ideal for all ages.

Location:660 Bexhill Rd, Mississauga, ON L5H 1A8



Burlington

Upper Middle Road Side: A popular hill with a long runway at bottom and great for small children sledding with parents.

Location: Upper Middle Rd, Burlington, ON L7M

LaSalle Park: What this hill lacks in size it makes up for in safety, making it perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

Location: Waterfront Trail, Burlington, ON L7T 4A4

Lowville Park: Another fan favourite! This one is a wide hill with a variety of slopes that attracts sledders of all ages.

Location: 6207 Guelph Line, Burlington, ONL7P 0A6

Bolus Gardens Parkette Hill: This hill is steep, but it’s very wide and gives plenty of room to slow down near the bottom. A perennial choice for experienced sledders!

Location:970 Francis Rd, Burlington, ON L7T 3Z1



Milton

Sixteen-Mile Creek: A bit of a misnomer as the hill is not, in fact, sixteen miles long. Still, it’s always a popular sledding spot, so be sure to get there early after a snowfall before the snow is worn down! Parking is available at the corner of Derry and Ontario.

Location: 585 Derry Rd W, Milton, ONL9T 2N2

Laurier Valley: Very wide, fairly steep, but not a long drop. This one is safe and family friendly.

Location: 316 Laurier Ave, Milton, ONL9T 3M9

Livingston Park: Not too steep and typically not very busy, this hill is great for families with younger kids.

Location:202 Margaret St, Milton, ON L9T 1T1

Glen Eden Tubing Park: This is a tubing park, where you are  pulled to the top of the hill and then you slide down on a very fast slope. You have to pay to use, but it has been said to be a fantastic experience and huge fun for the family.

Location: Glen Eden Ski Area, 5234 Kelso Rd, Milton, ON L9T 2X7
