With the snowfall already here, many of us have transitioned into full winter mode by getting out the winter tires, heavy-duty jackets and winter boots. While it can be nice to stay indoors and enjoy a movie or a stroll around a shopping mall, outdoor activities are already in full swing and Sudbury has some great nature escapes for this winter!
Windy Lake Provincial Park is located right outside Sudbury and has a great array of outdoor winter activities that are sure to please everyone. Keep reading to find out what these are!
Try your hand at ice fishing at Windy Lake Provincial Park! Don’t have any ice fishing equipment?
