Dashing through the snow is one thing, flying through it on a sled is another altogether. Dig that sled out of the garage and see how fast you can go down any of these sledding hills.
Visit the sledding hills of Whitnall Park in Franklin to slide your way down the park’s wintry hills. Located on the park’s golf course, the hill is lit for night sledding with both a large, 400-foot hill, and a small one for the more novice riders.
Check out the sledding hill at the expansive Brown Deer Park. Short on distance, but not thrills, this sledding hill features a short, steep slope that makes it the perfect place to slide, glide or skid.
Another thrill ride, Mount Bayside is a relatively new addition to the Bayside area. With a steep grade, this hill asks, “just how far can I slide?” And dares you to beat it.
Explore the sledding hills near all three Urban Ecology Center locations throughout the Milwaukee area.
