There's A Flurry of Winter Activities Coming to Brampton

 

Most of Brampton's outdoor skating rinks may still be closed, but there is a bunch of winter activities happening in the city.

Here's what else is happening during December in Brampton.


Christmas in the Park

On Saturday December 15, families can enjoy a day filled with holiday cheer at Chinguacousy Park. Activities include breakfast with Santa, writing letters to Santa and building gingerbread houses.

Only one parent or guardian is included per child who is registered. Additional parent/guardian tickets may be purchased in advance for an additional fee.

Registration is required for each activity.


Mount Chinguacousy Skiing, Snowboarding and Tubing

Mount Chinguacousy comes alive when the snow falls. Bundle up and hit the slopes beginning December 27 (weather permitting) on Brampton’s own ski, snowboard and tubing hill.

Improve your skills with a ski or snowboard lesson and warm up in the cozy chalet. Entrance to the ski chalet is at the corner of Central Park Drive and Bramalea Road.

More information on the hours of operation can be found here.
