Holiday happenings to keep you active
Shop. Dine. Explore. Celebrate the Holidays in Toronto. This season, discover a
world of exciting holiday activity - right in your own backyard. As you shop
and dine your way around town, be sure to take a break to explore and celebrate
the best of the season. Special events and Christmas celebrations are
happening around the city and in your neighbourhood. Don't let the holidays go
by without experiencing some festive fun. Be sure to join in the holiday cheer
and take advantage of the incredible selection of things to see and do. There's
something for everyone.

If you're looking for ways to work off some of that turkey and extra helping of
mashed potatoes, consider lacing up your skates, skis or snowboard and sign up
for a Parks and Recreation sports camp or take a lesson for the first time.
Skiing, snowboarding and skating programs for the holidays are being offered
for all ages and abilities at a very reasonable price. From the beginner on
the bunny hills to the advanced racer manoeuvring down the slopes, Parks and
Recreation programs can meet your skill level.

Many opportunities are also available for individuals, families and friends to
enjoy leisure skating and swimming. Feel free to drop by for an hour or two of
physical activity if an entire sports program doesn't fit your into your
holiday schedule.

For a complete listing of Parks and Recreation sports programs and drop-in
sessions during the holiday season, pick up your copy of the Toronto FUN Guide
Fall 2002/Winter 2003. Copies are available at all community centres, civic
centres and libraries or check Please note
registration is required for non-drop-in sports programs.
