Families will find the 27-foot high and 325-foot long Family Sledding Hill at Waterford Oaks County Park an exhilarating way to enjoy winter.
“The hill is ready to go, weather permitting. It’s a great outdoor wintertime activity where family and friends can gather and get some exercise at no cost,“ Park Supervisor Katie Stavale said. “Many childhood winter memories are made at sledding hills. Kids come wrapped from head to toe in snowsuits and go up and down the hill for as long as they can. Visitors are welcome to bring their own snacks and hot chocolate to complete the fun.”
Entry is free. The hill is open daily from sunrise to sunset or as posted at the park entrance. Visitors must bring their own toboggans or sleds. Safety lanes are present to direct sledders back up the hill. Portable restrooms are available.
Waterford Oaks County Park is located at 1702 Scott Lake Road in Waterford. The park offers 185 acres with hiking trails, platform tennis and the Family Sledding Hill for winter recreation.
