The Town of Halton Hills is reminding residents that there are several ways to enjoy the winter season amid the newly announced COVID-19 restrictions in Ontario.

Residents have several options in terms of outdoor activities in Halton Hills that include visiting parks and trails, toboggan hills and outdoor skating rinks.

“In line with public health guidelines we’re happy to offer opportunities for residents to enjoy the outdoors this winter,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette.

“Getting outside and enjoying these amenities is a great way to stay local and discover your community while keeping physically and mentally active.”

The Town’s parks and playgrounds remain open for the winter. This includes their leash-free parks at Cedarvale Park, Prospect Park and the new park at Trafalgar Sports Park.

Residents are reminded that general park areas are not maintained during winter, so it’s important to always dress appropriately for winter conditions.

Trails are also a great option for residents and can be an opportunity to use skis, snowshoes or hiking boots.

In terms of tobogganing, the Town maintains two hills at Cedarvale Park in Georgetown and Sir Donald Mann Park in Acton.

The Town also has outdoor rinks at Fairgrounds Park in Georgetown and Prospect Park in Acton, both of which are open.

Residents are reminded to stay off local stormwater ponds as water flow and water levels can fluctuate quickly without warning. Children should also be advised that playing on or near stormwater ponds should be avoided and that these surfaces are unsafe for skating.

For those who prefer to stay home, the Town is also offering several virtual activities and programming.
