Tobogganing at Glen Stewart Park

Family Tested

Brunch and toboggan combo

After a hearty brunch with our son on Queen Street East in the Beach, we decided to go for some tobogganing. We drove to the little park Ivan Forrest Gardens, nestled between Glen Manor Drive East and West where the ravine starts. An ice rink had been installed when we visited. A little further, north of Pine Crescent, the ravine deepens and the two facing slopes are sufficiently steep to entertain kids of all ages, despite their lack of length (which makes it easier on the parents who play the role of chairlift!). From the top of the stairs nearby, you can catch a lovely view of the area and the gorgeous residences and mature trees that overlook the slopes. Some years (not always) there's a cute rink made of natural ice.
