The white stuff is finally here and kids from Oshawa to Clarington to Uxbridge are pulling their toboggans out of storage in the hopes of having a little fun before it melts.

We’ve put together a list of hot tobogganing spots across Durham. This list is a work in progress, so if you have some suggestions that aren’t listed, on hills big or small (if you can let us know if they are good for little ones that would help too), let us know and you’ll automatically be entered in our February contest.


All hills are free unless noted.

  • Greenwood Conservation Area  Offers a variety of hill sizes
  • End of Lake Driveway (east end). Go to the end of Harwood, turn left on Lake Drive and you'll see the hill. Great for little ones.  




Scarborough (Pickering Border)





  • Very small hill for little ones on back field of Henry Street High School (600 Henry Street)
  • Very small hill of very end of Annes Street South (where it reaches a dead-end)
  • Medium/large hill (without too steep an incline) that many toddlers to school-aged kids use at the Otter Creek Park (bottom of hill is on Frost Drive, top of hill off Habitant Crescent)
