Off school and feeling cool? Get slipping and sliding at the toboggan hill in Rideau Lakes!
Bundle up and set out for Kin Park near Portland to make use of the hill. It’s unofficially the meeting spot for tobogganing in Rideau Lakes: big enough that it’s a thrill, but small enough that it’s not daunting for little ones.
The home of baseball, soccer, and summer fun turns into a winter wonderland in the snowy season, when the hill at 2311 Harlem Road sees kids sliding into some core memories.
The hill at Kin Park is located behind the canteen building. Visitors young and old enjoy bringing their sleds, tubes, toboggans and even beginner snow boards, to feel the excitement of one of Canada’s favourite winter pastimes.
Tobogganing is the perfect way to spend an afternoon during the holiday break from school. There is plenty of plowed, free parking on site and Kin Park is a fun spot to gather with friends to let the kids burn off some of that candy-cane induced energy.
The toboggan hill at Kin Park is available for use at your own risk, as weather permits. As always, use common sense while tobogganing. Wait for others to be well out of the way before starting to slide and look for a clear path all the way down.
Don’t forget to grab a warm drink or a hearty and healthy bite to eat at the Recess Café beforehand, or order a pizza to pick up on the way home from Portland Family Restaurant and Pizzeria. We hear their Canadian ‘za is a real treat – perfect for pairing with a true Canadian experience like tobogganing.
Don’t fight off winter this year – embrace it with sledding in Rideau Lakes!
