Parks, trails and off-leash areas

Spruce Grove has many parks, trails and off-leash areas that are ready to be explored.

Tobogganing areas

Downhill fun! Bring your family and friends for a day of free fun on a local hill. These hills are inspected and maintained by City staff and are recommended for sledding.

  • Fuhr Sports Park (next to Rotary Playscape)
  • Hilldowns Park, East of Fairway Drive
  • Jubilee Park, 510 Grove Drive
  • Spruce Village Park, #10 Victoria Avenue

When tobogganing or sledding:

  • Teach children to kneel or sit on their toboggan.
  • Make sure the route is clear before going down a hill. Remember the people below you have the right-of-way.
  • Once you reach the bottom, quickly move out of the way.
  • Remember to slide down the middle of the hill and climb up the side while watching for sledders on their way down.
  • Always stay in control of your sled.
