Tobogganing – Adams Park

We are so lucky to have a great toboggan hill so close to our house – Adams Park off of Lawson Rd. has a giant toboggan hill that is perfect for some winter fun.  The hill is tree free and has been sculpted with an uphill run-off so that all tobogganers come to a safe stop long before they reach any of the trees on the far side of the open space.  The hill is even flood-lit for night fun!

On Sunday afternoon I took the kids over to the park with my nieces and my Brother-in-laws.  The weather was on the chilly side at a finger numbing -12c but the sun was shining and the repeated climbs back up the hill were enough to ward off frostbite.  We arrived about 4pm with a variety of different toboggans, ranging from a traditional, wooden, 3 man sled, to a an inflatable inner-tube and others in between.   When the sun finally set we took it as our cue to head for the warmth of home. 

We’ll be doing it again real soon so lets hope for lots more snow.
