Don’t bring your booze or fireworks, and no bonfires, but the city of Louisville does allow and encourages the sue of its parks for sledding.
Open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, all of the hills below are deemed open for sledding, when weather permits of course.
Note that some of the hills may be closed if Metro Parks deems the parks roads too dangerous to drive, but you could still walk in I suppose.
The parks OK for sledding are:
Cherokee Park – Barringer Hill, intersection of Scenic Loop and Alexander Road
George Rogers Clark Park – Behind the playground at 1024 Thruston Avenue, near Mc Kinley.
Charlie Vettiner Park – 5550 Charlie Vettiner Park Road, near the entrance of Easum Road
Tyler Park – Highlands – 1501 Castlewood Avenue, on the Tyler Park side of the park
Mc Neely Lake Park – 6900 Cooper Chapel Road, very near the Korean War Memorial
Joe Creason Park – 1297 Trevilian Way, right behind the Metro Parks administrative building
Just a reminder, the hills and parks are open 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Have fun!
