Are you like us and stuck in Toronto over the winter holidays? And I mean ‘stuck’ in the most positive way possible. If so, come along. We’ll be searching the city for ways to keep you and the kids busy even without white stuff on the ground.


Baseland trails in Tommy Thompson Park

Every day from Monday, December 21 to Sunday, January 3, we’ll be posting activities on Kids in T.O. on Facebook and Instagram. Like/Follow us there to see what we have in our wagon.

Here’s how we’re starting the break – getting the heck outside. The family nature hike – it’s simple, free and you can do it pretty much any day over the holidays. We’ve suggested these kid-friendly hikes around the city (and here are a couple more winter hikes from BlogTO.)

Topping our trail list is a recent discovery — the Baselands in Tommy Thompson Park in Leslieville. ‘The Spit’ is one of our favourite spots to explore with or without kids in TOw. Instead of taking the paved path, head through one of the trails through the Baseland for this view. Save this one for your post-Christmas adventuring — the park is only open on weekends and holidays (that’s December 27 – 31, 2015.)

Happy Trails!
