Proud to be a Northern city, Montréal offers a wide array of outdoor activities to get the most out of winter and sliding is definitely a favourite among young and old alike.
What better for rosy cheeks and fresh air than to slide downhill on a tube, toboggan or saucer! Fun and free (most of the time), this activity takes place in many of the city’s public parks, some of which are within easy reach of the metro and even offer rental toboggans or crazy carpets.
Grab your sled and head to Mount Royal, Jean-Drapeau Park, Angrignon Park, Maisonneuve Park, the Parc-nature de l’Île-de-la-Visitation and the Parc-nature du Cap-Saint-Jacques. Enjoy their enchanting setting and warm up in a lively chalet! Thrills guaranteed!
Festivals are also a great place to slide: APIK in the Latin Quarter, for adrenaline enthusiasts, and MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE, with its urban slides in the heart of downtown. No excuse not to play outside!
Enjoy the best of Montréal
