Environmentally friendly Activities that will revive your Holiday strive !
Ah yes it’s the most wonderful time of year, who doesn’t love slushy sidewalks and friedget fingers. The winter season is full of wonder and festivities, but the cold weather can cause us to stay in and hibernate. With the school year at a standstill, it’s easy to get caught up in the cycle of binge watching your favorite shows and hiding from the elements. Ditch your snuggy and take control of your winter break with some fun, eco-friendly activities to do with the family or that special person in your life. It’s important to remember that you can still have fun in the sun … even if it may be snowing, carry on as this week we’ll be highlighting three sustainable, exciting events and activities to bring warmth and joy back into your winter break.
Snow play and Sledding
The best part and worst part of the winter is definitely the snow. It can be dreadful when cleaning your car before work but it’s also full of possibility and fun! Spending time in the snow is perfect if you have younger siblings or a playful partner. You don’t need this article to tell you how to have a snowball fight or build a fort, but we will tell you the best places to have them. Snowball wars, fort building and tobogganing are timeless activities that do not cause harm to the environment. The greater Toronto area is a gold mine of public parks and places to shred some snow. Some of the most iconic places are Riverdale Park, Trinity Bellwoods Park, High Park, Christie Pits and Sir Winston Churchill Park. The best locations for winter fun are all listed above, you can find these parks by simply googling the locations. Riverdale park is 18-hectare of land off Danforth and Broadview Avenues and has views of downtown Toronto skyline and is perfect for your next sledding competition and photo shoot. Don’t have a sled ? No problem! Any object with a smooth surface that is large enough to sit on is perfect. Ditch the TV remote and grab your gloves as you prepare for some free, sustainable fun in the winter snow.
