Kensington Metropark Sledding Hills
The park offers four types of hills within the Orchard section of the park. The toboggan runs, sledding as well as beginner snowboarding hills are located at the Orchard picnic area. All the slopes have designated lanes to return back to the top of the hill in order to facilitate safety.
The bunny hill is designed for toddlers and young children with very little experience on the slopes. The bunny slopes have the added safety feature of being lined with padded trees. While the beginner hill provides a steep long straight path. For those that want a bit more excitement, the intermediate slope is even steeper and longer than the beginner slope. Finally, the advanced slope provides a more steep and curvy path for sledding. Saucers and inflatables are not permitted on the advanced nor the intermediate hills.
If you have your own toboggan, then you will love the toboggan run at Kensington Metropark. The run is also located at the Orchard Picnic Area and is a fun and fast thrill ride.
Restrooms and pavilion are available near the Bunny Hill. Although there is no warming station.
