Voted Best Place to Go Sledding in City Pages
The MPRB recognizes that sledding occurs at other parks on an “at your own risk” basis. While some parks are more sled-friendly than others, please exercise caution when using these non-designated sledding areas; never sled toward traffic and avoid hills with trees nearby.
