Tobogganing around Durham Region

Here are Durham Region's parent picks for tobogganing hot spots from Ajax, to Oshawa to Whitby and beyond. If you have a hot spot to suggest that's not listed, please let email us at lisa@parentsource.ca so we can add it to our list.

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 we're more than happy to add them.

All hills are free unless noted.
