City’s approved sledding hills closed

The City of Ottawa has temporarily closed its 55 approved sledding hills due to the mild weather conditions and lack of snow, which have resulted in unsafe conditions for sledding. The City of Ottawa urges the public to keep personal safety in mind and to remain off the sledding hills until further notice. The hills will reopen once we receive some new snow and only after hill conditions are deemed safe.

Notification of the re-opening of the hills will be available on the City’s website at
