Family Day Winter Fun - with sleigh rides!
February 15th 2016

We are already planning for Family Day 2016!

On Monday February 15th, Falls Reserve will be hosting a winter fun day! Visitors are welcome to bring their skis and snowshoes and hit the trails at the park. Admission is $5 per car.

Horse-drawn sleigh rides will be available on a first come first served basis. The rides will make a 20 minute loop of the park. There will be a minimal fee for the sleigh rides. The cost will be posted as Family Day draws closer.

Snowshoe rentals will be available for $3.00 a pair. We can fit children ages 4 and over. Staff will provide simple snowshoeing tips to help you get started. A limited number of snowshoe poles will also be available.

We have over 5-km of groomed trails so bring your cross country skis and explore the park.Visitors are invited to warm up at campfires at the Picnic Shelter and at the Above the Falls buidling. 

A picnic area will be set up at the Above the Falls building for visitors who want to bring a lunch or snack. Hot dogs, popcorn, hot chocolate and coffee will be available. 

Winter Fun Day will run from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Volunteers to help out during the day of the event are welcome! Please contact Jason or Paul at 519-524-6429 or email
