Worried that the colder weather will limit your fun? We can have fun this winter while still following all government guidelines and restrictions regarding COVID-19.
Drive-In theatres are making a comeback and this year, so you can catch some great movies at Ontario Place. Open all winter, the Ontario Place Drive-In shows classic movies along with new releases. Why don't you bundle up, grab some blankets and take the family to see a show in the comfort of your own car. Residents of our Adelaide Street apartments are less than 15 minutes from Ontario Place.
If you're looking for something to entertain the whole family, Nights of Lights is back with a holiday theme. You can get in the festive spirit with the Holiday Nights of Lights just 30 minutes from our Roehampton Apartments. You can easily book your tickets online for this event displaying over 1,000,000 LED lights synchronized to holiday music throughout a 2.25km drive.
Also, the Toronto Zoo has extended its Terra Lumina walking event. After dark, guests are invited for an enchanted night walk through the zoo. With beautiful lights, multimedia effects and spectacular video projections, you and your loved ones will be transported to the year 2099 where people and animals live in harmony. This event only runs every Friday to Sunday, so you need to book your tickets online in advance. Our Bridletowne and Aurora Court buildings are only a quick 20 minute walk from the Toronto Zoo.
This winter you can also get your exercise by taking a brisk walk or hike along the Beltline Trail a short distance from our Balliol Street apartments. This 9km trek that follows alongside Mud Creek within the Moore Park Ravine is especially beautiful this time of year. Alternatively, you can get your body moving while you cross country ski or snowshoe at Crothers Woods, just minutes from our Thorncliffe Park apartments.
Once the flurries start, you will be able to plan some tobogganing fun. Toronto has over 20 different parks with tobogganing hills to explore. For example, Christie Pits Park and Brickford Park have a variety of hills with different descents perfect for all skill levels. These parks are located just a short subway ride from our conveniently located Panorama Towers.
Toronto is full of great outdoor activities. However, it is important to remember to enjoy responsibly: you should avoid crowded parks and paths and stay home if you are unwell.
