Winter is here and it is time to get out and play! Embracing all the fun that winter has to offer is key to making it through the short days and long cold nights. There are so many activities you can get out and enjoy outdoors during the winter, no need to stay cooped up inside. You can get out for a hike, just dress in layers and ice cleats are a good idea as well.
If you enjoy skating there are several outdoor rinks in Mississauga that you can enjoy and many natural rinks around the city that are open weather permitting. But of all the winter activities my children enjoy tobogganing the most! There are many great spots to get out and enjoy sledding, and we are going to let you know the best tobogganing Mississauga has to offer.
Tobogganing is a FREE activity and a great way to EXPLORE the Outdoors! A few tips before you head out. Safety first always! Check the hills for any debris, sticks, snow/ice ramps that may be left behind. Helmets are always a good idea. If you are at a bigger hill, test the speeds out first by starting in the middle, before going all the way from the top.
To ensure you have a fun time make sure you dress in layers to keep warm, and of course snowsuit, waterproof boots and waterproof gloves are always a good idea. There is lots of walking involved with climbing back up the hills when tobogganing that everyone will get a good workout.
