Winter is a wonderful time of the year, especially in Oakville. If you're new to the area or aren't sure how to fill your time during the winter months, we've got some fun ways to enjoy the season. 

Tobogganing is the perfect way to spend a snowy day in Oakville. Two of the best tobogganing locations are about 10 minutes from our Trafalgar Heights apartments. The hills at Old Abbey Lane Park are free of obstacles and trees and there's plenty of parking available at the school. For a larger thrill, head to Appleby College, where you'll find a wide hill with a steeper slope. 

Oakville is a beautiful city with numerous parks and nature trails. During the winter, many enjoy hiking through the trails at Bronte Creek Provincial Park. When the snow piles up, grab some snowshoes or cross country skis and enjoy the trails in a whole new way. Additionally, Glen Eden Ski and Snowboard Centre is a quick 30 minutes away and offers slopes for all skill levels as well as lessons for beginners. 

Take the family skating at one of Oakville's seven indoor skating rinks. Or if you prefer, take the short drive to the Trafalgar Park Community Centre and skate on the refrigerated outdoor rink. Warm up afterwards with a specialty brewed coffee or hot chocolate at Tribeca Coffee Co. on Lakeshore Road East. 

Some people would never consider riding a bike through the snow, but the nature trails in Oakville are perfect for the fat bike experience. Fat bikes offer thicker tires with extra grip which makes them the best choice for snow and slush. Gears Bike Shop is just minutes from our Trafalgar Heights apartments and has everything you need to prepare for winter riding. 

Take a break from the cold and step into the Oakville Municipal Greenhouse. This hidden gem is the perfect place to escape winter for an afternoon. Enjoy the warmth while you admire the plants, shrubs, and pond.
