  1. I was at Adams park last night Lawson rd near Port union! one nice size hill with picnic beaches, it was a blast! Just wondering if you know of anything near Sheppard ave and Morningside rd in Scarborough. (in the Malvern area)
    thanks for this page! it`s amazing!!
    Frank

    • The best place to bring the kids for tobogganing is in Miliken park, along steels and between Middlefield and Mccowan, big hill and wide space

  2. The ROC in Georgina has a toboggan hill that is free, with the opportunity to go tubing for a reasonable price amongst a number of other activities both winter and summer.
    The other great toboggan hill of all time, from when I was a kid growing up, Dennie Park in Newmarket, off of Cane Pkwy. Awesome Hill!!

  3. Darn… wish I had read this article 3 weeks ago! I was looking for a hill in Markham to take my 3 year old and ended up at Fincham Park based on a friend’s recommendation. We had a great time there with just a couple of Krazy Karpets… my boy was bombing down on his tummy in minutes, haha. It’s about a 30 footer with a mild incline and a very flat bottom to cruise comfortably to a halt. Definitely will try the other sites in this article next winter (or if we’re “blessed” with more snow this year lol!). Thanks for the info!

  4. Scarden park on Warden Ave. just north of 401 on the east side. Great hill down and the jogging trail in middle turns into a ramp with snow which is awesome!
