The Best Places for Sledding in and around Louisville


Sledding in Louisville

Sledding in LouisvilleWinter is really upon us with crisp air and snowy nights!  Growing up in NY, I loved to sled but our yard was flat so sledding had to take place elsewhere. Problem was, in NY, when it snowed, IT SNOWED and there was no way my parents were driving us out in the snow so we had to wait a day to let the road get cleared and then snow.  But, with 3 inches of snow in Louisville, the roads can clear quicker and be safe for traveling and people can hit a great hill in the area for sledding!

Where to go sledding in Louisville? There are many places!

Louisville Metro Parks has designated sledding areas.  From their website:
