The Sledding Hill at Martin Road Park

In the winter, the park is also a popular spot for sledding. The smaller hill provides a medium sized height compared to other hills in the area. Therefore, it’s a great space for intermediate sledders. There is a designated return path up with concrete steps on the back side of the hill. The hill steep enough to get a bit of speed, and we found the ground to be rather smooth and free of bumps.
