Brrrrrr! We can’t deny it anymore, winter is here in full force; the boots and parkas are out to play. It’s no secret that it can be tough to find the motivation to get out there during this chilly time. I get it – the idea of staying cozy inside is much more enticing. But, while necessary sometimes, we can’t let this cold front keep us from hanging out with our family and friends! I challenge us all to step outside (pun intended) of our comfort zones, and try to make the most of these upcoming chilly weeks!

No need to search for what to do, we’ve got you covered! Check out these fun-filled activities less than 5km from XO Condos:

Come wintertime, The Bentway transforms into a wondrous 220m skate trail. The trail features an on-site winter village, equipped with hot chocolate and warming stations (amen!). If you’re an amateur on the ice, The Bentway will offer free skate lessons for kids and adults! For more information, check out their website here –

This City of Toronto approved tobogganing location is praised for having some of the best hills in the City! With 3 hills at the park, you are bound to enjoy some stellar rides! Let your inner kid run free and get out there while you can!

The cold never bothered us anyways!
