And below is other information about places of interest for sledding on Long Island
Short and steep, this Bellmore town is a round hill, which means everyone climbs to the top and can sled downhill in any direction.
Basically, imagine sleigh-riding down a giant gumdrop. The summit is close to two stories high and the ride to flat ground is about 50 feet long.
If you have young children and want a family atmosphere for your fun in the snow, this is where to go. Sled Hill at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow is wide and long with a gentle downgrade.
Bethpage State Park opens both the Red and Green courses for public sledding when weather permits. If you’ve ever played or driven past any golf course, you already know the advantages of sleigh-riding on such terrain.
This hill begins right behind the Old First Presbyterian Church on Main Street in Huntington and leads you right into Heckscher Park. It’s relatively small in terms of width, but the length and the decline will satisfy riders. There are four trees placed sporadically near the top of the hill that create natural lanes for older riders and alternate starting points for younger, less experienced sledders.
Four miles south, Koster Park in Huntington Station is pretty good for the little kids, too.
