With snow on the ground, many Louisville residents may be wondering if they can break out their old sleds.
The good news is yes!
Louisville Parks and Recreation announced multiple parks will open up their hills for sledding when accumulation reaches 2-3 inches.
The following parks will be open designated hills from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. to the public:
- Cherokee Park (Baringer Hill, intersection of Alexander Road and Scenic Loop)
- Joe Creason Park (Trevilian Way, across from Louisville Zoo).
- George Rogers Clark Park (1024 Thruston Avenue, behind playground, near McKinley Avenue)
- McNeely Lake Park (6900 Cooper Chapel Road, near Korean War Memorial)
- Charlie Vettiner Park (5550 Charlie Vettiner Park Road, near Easum Road entrance)
These hills have been specifically chosen as the safest and best hills for sledding with proper accumulation. Sledders are asked to only sled during designated hours and with proper snow cover.
Metro Parks also recommends to dress in layers to stay warm, check your path before descent, and to follow proper sledding rules when at the parks.
Families are also asked to follow proper social distancing protocols. People should wear a mask and stay 6 feet away from other sledders.
