Best Places To Toboggan In Kitchener Waterloo

Where Can You Go Tobogganing in Kitchener Waterloo?



Back in the day there was an abundance of snow and lots of fields in the Kitchener Waterloo area which meant lots of places to toboggan.  Now with our shortened winters and lots of new neighbourhood developments it seems a little harder to know exactly where those sled hills are.

The first one everyone thinks of is McLennan Park in Kitchener aka Mount Trashmore for those who have lived in Kitchener before it's revamping. Here's a video of my co-workers tobogganing at McLennan Park back in 2010



I remember when I was young spending a lot of time going down the hill at Gzowski Park in Kitchener although I recall that park has changed over the years as well with the addition of the Victoria Hills Community Centre.  Near by there is my Elementary School A.R. Kaufman that had a hill by the soccer field.

If you're willing to spend some cash for a day of downhill tobogganing, there's Chicopee Tube Park, where unlike Miley Cyrus it's NOT about the climb.

In Waterloo, Columbia Lake field by the soccer pitch is a great spot!

I know that there has to be more great places to toboggan in the Kitchener Waterloo area, so I "group-sourced" from our Stuff To Do Facebook Group for some additional places to go tobogganing.

Melissa Y added Rockway Public School
Alicia L said Howard Roberston School
Valerie T messaged Dickson Park Cambridge

Let's grow this list! I'm sure there are plenty of other places to bust out your GT Snowracer, Flying Saucer, Crazy Carpet, Wood Toboggan or other sled.  Leave your favorite Region Of Waterloo toboggan hill in the comments to keep this list growing!

  1. There is still a very decent hill behind the Victoria Hills Community Centre. Always a busy spot for tobogganing.
