NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – The Municipality of North Grenville is pleased to offer a sledding hill in partnership with the Ferguson Forest Centre.

“Council is thrilled with the addition of this outdoor winter activity for residents to enjoy - without having to leave town,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford.

“The need for safe, outdoor recreational activities for families is even greater during the pandemic, and we thank Ferguson Forest Centre for offering such a wonderful space,” added Mayor Peckford.  

The toboggan hill is located at the Arboretum in the Ferguson Forest Centre (241 Honour Way) and open to the public when weather conditions permit from 8:00 am to dusk daily. Parking is available at the dog park.

“Provided posted toboggan hill rules are followed and Ontario health guidelines are adhered to, experts agree tobogganing is a safe and healthy family oriented outdoor activity. Come out and enjoy the fresh air at the toboggan hill as well as the Centre’s off leash dog park, many trails and park areas and the arboretum,” stated Ferguson Forest Centre President Carl Doucette.

“Having this new facility to expand outdoor recreation for families in our community is a welcome asset - and very important to our wellbeing. I appreciate the work of the FFC and the Municipality of North Grenville for their collaborative effort,” added Councillor Doreen O’Sullivan and Parks, Recreation and Culture Liaison.

Participants are asked to follow the rules posted on site as well as public health guidelines, including maintaining physical distancing from those outside of your household.
