Hillside Park

Trails and park continue to be open regular hours, subject to physical distancing and outdoor gathering size limit of 25.

Note that trails are maintained differently throughout the winter:

- paved trails such as Iron Horse or Spur Line are cleared first, expect mostly bare conditions
- gravel trails cannot be maintained by salt, expect packed snow and wet conditions
- natural trails in environmental areas are not maintained but remain open for use

Please use appropriate footwear for the expected terrain.

Hillside is a popular place for baseball games and tournaments. During poor weather, check cancellations on our field conditions page.
