Toboggan Hills in Milton
After a nice deep snowfall, I took the kids out tobogganing yesterday. Finding a decent toboggan hill in Milton is a tough mission, but there are a few around.
I’ll share our tobogganing spots, and point you to a toboggan hill database where you can both look up some hills or add some of your own.
Best In Milton – Lowville Park
Okay, it’s more *near* Milton than in it but it’s the best hill we’ve got. Steep, an okay size, easy to get to and park. On the down side it tends to be busy and if there’s not much snow, bumpy from all the brush. Watch out for trees near the bottom, although I think they’ve started to put hay bales there now for safety.
Best Nearby: Food Basics
Near the corner of Laurier and Ontario, there is a park with a decent hill. Mid-grade slope and plenty wide. Parking is available in the Food Basics parking lot.
Most Popular: Sixteen-Mile Creek
People flock to the hill near Commercial and Laurier, a very wide spot with lots of room for everyone. It is a steep but pretty short slope. People park on the road, but I’d rather see you park at the highschool or in the parking lot of Rad Brothers (near Derry & Ontario).
Hidden Gem: Livingston Park
I stumbled across the hill at Livingston Park during a summer cleanup with my daughter’s Girl Guides troop. We went to visit it yesterday, and there was nobody at the hill with pristine powder. It’s not a very steep slope, but a decent size for young kids. Parking is available at the end of Margaret Street.
I’ve added all these slopes to TobogganHills.com. Are there any hills you can share?
