Winter-like conditions for outdoor recreation before the actual first day of winter on December 21 were non-existent. But since the official arrival of that first day of winter, all manner of outdoor recreational activities have been available. From the front or backyard to local slopes and trails, the area has received more than 40 centimetres of snow since December 21. The photos in this gallery are from two local hotspots for winter fun, St. Lawrence Park and Laurier Hill.
