Come Play in the Snow!

Experience winter fun at the biggest snow playground on the continent! At the Snowflake Kingdom in Gatineau, you’ll find tons of activities inspired by Canadian winter and Northern traditions.

The Ice Hog family, beloved mascots of Winterlude, can also be found at the Snowflake Kingdom. The Ice Hog family lives here at Jacques-Cartier Park while visiting Canada’s Capital Region each February. They love to play and give out hugs, and are happy to pose for pictures.

Snowflake Kingdom is presented by the Ville de Gatineau and Canadian Heritage.

Reminder: Snowflake Kingdom is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
