Getting out and enjoying the winter is going to be easier with the predicted snow this week. Could it be time? Just in time for December and those fantastic winter activities the city has to offer? If you’re as excited about the white stuff as we are, here’s a list that’s going to answer one of those fun winter questions – where do I go tobogganing in Edmonton?
Laurier Bowl is one of our favorite family friendly hills, with jumps often built into the hill to up the fun factor.
Find it at: 13221 Buena Vista Rd
7 Hills (St. Albert)
This hill has been called one of the most fun in the city, because of the unexpected jumps. There are gorgeous views of downtown St. Albert. Park at the bottom of the hill for easy access.
Find it at: Mission Hill
McGhan Park (Sherwood Park)
Perfect for small children, there are two hills here on either side of the park. The smaller one will be as you enter the community, parking on the side of the road just past the church. Keep going around the park and you’ll find the steeper, more exciting hill for older children.
Find it at: 751 Meadowview Drive
Emily Murphy Park
Great for families, there are heated washrooms, not too steep a climb up the hill and fire pits to keep warm while you’re in between runs up the hill.
Find it at: 11904 Emily Murphy Park Rd
For Thrill Seekers: Gallagher Hill (Muttart)
This one’s for older kids (or if you’re an adult who wants to go down the hill for a thrill. Sledders go fast here, and you’ve got a long walk to the top of the hill. This one would be perfect for adult date night.
Find it at: 97 Avenue and 92 Street
Rundle Park ACT Hill + Walton’s Mountain
At Rundle Park, you’re going to find many options to choose from when you’re tobogganing with the family in Edmonton, from the ACT Hill + Walton’s Mountain that are regularly used by local tobogganers, to finding your own smaller hills through the park, perfect for little kids.
Find it at: 2909 113 Ave
Whitemud Park North
This hill is great for all ages (though maybe not for toddlers). One of our favourite parts of the hill is how fast you zip down it, and the fact that there are stairs on the side of the hill to avoid slipping up while you’re trying to get back up to go down the hill on the sled, again.
Find it at: Keillow Road and Fox Drive.
