Skate under the stars, toboggan down scenic hills or explore snow-covered trails on cross-country skis. Our parks and outdoor ice rinks and trails are a true winter paradise for all ages, offering endless opportunities for outdoor fun.

*Courts are not salted or cleared of snow.

Snow Clearing in Parks

Winter maintenance of park pathways, trails and roads is provided at more than 250 parks across Toronto.

  • Pathways are cleared of snow within 24 hours if there is more than 8cm of snowfall
  • Paved recreational trails are cleared of snow after 48 hours
  • Salting occurs within 24 to 48 hours of snow clearing

Maintenance may vary depending on local and environmental conditions. The City cannot maintain all pathways in all parks during the winter due to factors such as pathway/trail surface material and whether the pathway is located within Environmentally Significant Areas.
