Winter Fun in Chinguacousy Park
Brampton's destination park transforms into a winter wonderland in the month of December with fun activities for the whole family.
 
Celebrate Christmas in the Park on December 9, 10, 16 and 17. Kids and their parents can enjoy a nativity pageant, cookie decorating, crafts and games. Write a letter to Santa, then meet the man himself, visit his reindeer and snap a photo! Registration is required.
 
As the temperatures drop, get ready to lace up your skates and hit the ice at Chinguacousy Park's new outdoor skating trail. The ice could be open as early as December 9, if weather permits. Keep an eye on the website to check the status of Brampton's outdoor ice rinks.

Mount Chinguacousy comes alive when the snow flies! 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. [more...]
