Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Tobogganing at Bronte Creek (Oakville)

Family Tested
High energy

So much to do

In the wintertime, our attention shifts from Bronte Creek's big pool to the large, well-maintained ice rink, where they rent skates (located near parking lot D). I love this rink with its natural surroundings! There's a wide path climbing to the top of a hill overlooking the provincial park. Its two faces hold much to be enjoyed by young toboggan fans, The view is far-reaching from both sides of the hill, offering athletes an unusually rare panorama. Spruce Farm, the visitor centre and the animal barns are open in winter. Once you're done with the slopes, I recommend you drive to parking lot C and walk to the park's playground in a barn (with animals in adjacent buildings). The barn is not heated so you need to dress warmly but they've added a heated room within the barn for the parents patiently waiting for their kids to be done.
