Fort Greene Park

Interior of the park at Willoughby Avenue, Fort Greene/Clinton Hill

Highland Park

Highland Boulevard and Jamaica Avenue, Cypress Hills

A very overlooked park, on the border between Brooklyn and Queens in Cypress Hills, is Highland Park. The park is in fact on a high plateau that seems to crease the middle of Long Island well beyond city limits. The views of the ocean are stunning enough, but the sledding is primo!

The hills here attract sledders from Flatbush, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Windsor Terrace, and beyond.

The most popular slope is near the old tennis house and the current picnic house (nearest entrance is on Prospect Park West and 9th Street), but if that’s too crowded, try the one in the meadow off Grand Army Plaza or the one behind the Picnic House, at the Third Street entrance.

Shore Road Park

Shore Road and 97th Street, Bay Ridge

The big hill here is hard to miss. It may be a bit steep for young kids and/or beginner sledders. The good news: There are three year-round bathrooms in the park.

Here you’ll find one of the highest points on all of Long Island (meaning the entire fish-shaped glacial land mass from Brooklyn to Montauk Point).

Crocheron Park

35th Avenue (opposite Golden Pond), Bayside / Little Neck

There’s a sweet sledding hill on 35th Avenue near 216th Street. Bring the family dog along and enjoy the park’s dog run by the gazebos (west of 35th Avenue and Cross Island Parkway).

Lower Highland Park

Jamaica Avenue and Elton Street, Cypress Hills

Since this park is located on a high plateau that straddles Queens and Brooklyn, sledders are rewarded with stunning views of surrounding neighborhoods, the ocean, and nearby cemeteries. (Note that Highland is more easily accessible on the Brooklyn side.)

Kissena Park

Enter at Metcalf Avenue and 164th Street, East Flushing / Fresh Meadows

The hill is just east of Kissena Lake. There is a year-round bathroom located on the northeast edge of the park, near Oak Avenue. There’s also a playground nearby, at Rose and Oak avenues.

Bowne Park

Small hillside on the 155th Street side of the park, Flushing

Best for the little ones in your brood. A year-round bathroom is located in the park at 155th Street and 32nd Avenue

Forest Park

Mary Whelan Playground at 79th Street and Park Lane South, Kew Gardens / Forest Hills

Tots can tackle this hill easily. This park is also easily accessible from the Glendale, Richmond Hill, and Woodhaven neighborhoods.

Juniper Valley Park

Juniper Boulevard North and South, near the Tennis Building at 75th Street, Middle Village

Ewen Park is a smaller park, but its hill is for the adventurous! The hill is pretty steep and you have to bail out at the end but it is worth the adrenaline rush. Some also like to use the stairs as a hill, although that is not as safe.

Crotona Park

Charlotte St., Crotona Park

For those in the Bronx looking for snow day fun, Crotona Park is as beautiful and fun in winter as it is in every other season. Look for the slope behind Ballfield #3, you won’t regret it.
