    Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the sledding is so delightful!

    With temperatures getting lower and the holiday season behind us, winter can start to seem like something of a drag. But then, the first few big snowfalls of the season come along to remind us of what can make winter great. School and work gets canceled, hot chocolate (preferably spiked, for those of age) becomes the beverage of choice, and best of all—SLEDDING!

    The Metro Parks in Louisville have officially designated six sledding hills, selected because they are the “best and safest” (check out their website for safety tips and precautions). As long as there are over two inches of snow, these slopes will be open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. 

     

    1. Cherokee Park (Baringer Hill, intersection of Alexander Road and Scenic Loop)

    2. George Rogers Clark Park (1024 Thruston Avenue, behind playground, near McKinley Avenue)

    3. Joe Creason Park (1297 Trevilian Way, behind Metro Parks administration building)

    4. McNeely Lake Park (6900 Cooper Chapel Road, near Korean War Memorial)

    5. Tyler Park (1501 Castlewood Avenue, on Tyler Park Drive side of park)

    6. Charlie Vettiner Park (5550 Charlie Vettiner Park Road, near Easum Road entrance)

     

    Do you hear that? The slopes are calling!
