Sledding hills are located in Warner Park, Berkley Park, Olbrich Park, Heistand Park and Elver Park. Parks Staff reminds everyone to have fun, be safe and respect your fellow sledders. Bring your own sleds. Keep a safe distance from others when sledding. Exit the bottom of the hill as quickly as possible. Walk up the hill using the side of the hill. And remember, the use of the sledding hill is at your own risk.
