1. Beverly Park Sledding Hill in Beverly Hills
The Sledding Hill at Beverly Hills Park (aka Beverly Hills Village Park) is the perfect hill for sledding and therefore is our number one choice. It is located on Beverly Road, just west of Southfield Road thus making this a great central metro Detroit sledding hill. Beverly Park is a 34-acre park that not only offers an amazing sledding hill but also an ice skating rink in the winter.

3. Two Great Sledding Hills at Stony Creek Metropark
We love Stony Creek Metropark not only because of it’s prime location, but also because of all the amazing outdoor winter activities that are available. In fact, the 4,461 acre park offers plenty to do, with something for everyone. While the main winter attraction for families is sledding at Stony Creek Metropark, the park also offers snowboarding, cross county skiing, biking and ice skating.
Stony Creek offers several more than 13 miles of marked and groomed trails for walking snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. In general, the trails range in difficulty from easy to most difficult. While the Trolley Trails offer ungroomed pathways near the entrance. Cross-Country Ski Rentals are available during the weekends only.
