Experience an evening of tobogganing at "Garbage Hill!"

Join us for an evening of tobogganing at one of Winnipeg's most-loved toboggan hills, Garbage Hill.

Located just north of Polo Park in Westview Park, Garbage Hill used to be a landfill.  Yup, that's right, Garbage Hill is actually made out of garbage... though it's long since been covered with dirt and grass.

Also known as "Green Hill" and "Makeout Hill," Garbage Hill is great place to be if you want to go down a hill, and for an evening of tobogganing, we want to do exactly that!

The Plan:

7:00 pm - meet at the Garbage Hill LOWER parking lot (corner of Empress Street and Wellington Avenue) do introductions, hand out lanyards, take group photo

7:10 pm (approx.) - tobogganing!

8:15 pm (approx.) - whenever we're done tobogganing (probably sometime between 8:00 and 8:30), we'll head over to the Tim Horton's at the corner of St. James and Wellington (1221 St. James Street) for an aprés-toboggan coffee or hot chocolate (optional)

9:00 pm (approx.) - leave Tim's for home

Please Bring: 

• appropriate clothing for the weather, including layers, mittens, toque 

• toboggan, crazy carpet, or inner tube (bring one if you have it, otherwise we'll share a couple that we have) 

• extra toboggans to share (if you have any) 

• your Experience Manitoba! lanyard (if you don't have one, you'll receive yours at this meetup) 

• money for a snack/drink at Tim Horton's after (optional) 

• a camera (optional)
