Toboggan Hill

The Toboggan Hill is OPEN.

Located near the Riley Family Duck Pond and the Nature Playground, the Toboggan Hill is a favourite seasonal attraction for the young and the young at heart! The hill offers exciting thrills and spills for those who love the feel of wind (and snow) in their faces.

  • Bring your own toboggan
  • Slide with caution
  • Stick to the centre of the hill
  • Watch out for children and people walking
  • Be patient when the hill is busy
  • Most of all, have fun!

Cross-Country Ski Trails

Enjoy the serene beauty of Assiniboine Park on our groomed cross-country ski trails. During the winter months, the trails are typically groomed twice a week as weather permits. We do not groom the trails if it is snowing and will commence grooming when the snowfall stops. Trails are open 8:00 am to 10:00 pm during the ski season.
