Frosty Fun at Our Parks

Frosty Fun at Our Parks

When the cold weather hits, it can be hard to convince yourself to go outside. While staying indoors sometimes seems like the better option, winter has a lot to offer us in terms of outdoor activities.

Having fun outside is just as possible in the winter as it is in the summer. Our conservation areas have many activities running for you to check out:

1. Ice Fishing

Fishing isn’t just for summer days on the lake. Ice fishing is a great way to spend time outdoors this winter, and it’s fun for both kids and adults.

2. Kicksledding

Kicksledding is a fun way to stay active in winter. It’s perfect for families. New to the activity? That’s okay! It’s easy to learn and rentals are available at Terra Cotta Conservation Area.

3. Ice Skating

Skating is a great way to get outdoors with the whole family or a group of friends. Whether you want to sharpen your skating skills or play a little hockey, our conservation areas are the place to go. Always check ice conditions before heading out.

4. Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing is great for both beginners and seasoned explorers. Both Island Lake and Terra Cotta Conservation Areas offer a variety of terrains for your snowshoeing adventures.

5. Cross-Country Skiing

Cross-country skiing is a tried and true way to have fun outside in the snow. Our conservation areas have many trails available for cross-country skiers to explore when conditions permit.

6. Fat Tire Bikes

Think biking is for warm weather only? Think again! Our fat tire bikes are available for rent in all seasons. Their fat tires make them the perfect way to get across any terrain, including snow.

7. Year-Round Outdoor Activities
If active sports aren’t for you, there are still plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy nature. Whether it’s walking your dog, birdwatching, or taking photos of our beautiful world, winter is a great time to enjoy some fresh air with friends and family.

Have a look at our events calendar for more information on our Moonlight Events, Family Day and the Island Lake Ice Fishing Derby.

And remember – check park conditions before heading out and be sure to dress for the weather. It’s important to always stay warm, stay safe, and have fun!
