Best places to sled in st louis


Art Hill in Forest Park, St. Louis
The first place that always comes to mind!! Through the years, Art Hill – located in front of the St. Louis Art Museum – has become the area's most beloved sledding locale thanks to a slope that is nearly as wide as it is long. The hill is steep enough to be exhilarating but not extreme enough to disqualify younger thrill seekers. Art Hill is located at 1 Fine Arts Drive, St. Louis, MO, 63110.
Bum's Hollow in Blanchette Park, St. Charles
Located at the rear of Blanchette Park, Bum's Hollow is perhaps the most popular sledding destination in St. Charles County. Its bowl shape boasts hills of varying grades and can accommodate hundreds of sledders at a time. Located at 1900 West Randolph St., St. Charles, MO, 63301.
Deer Creek Park, Maplewood
Tucked away next to the small Deer Creek Park in Maplewood is a short-but-steep hill that attracts a lot of local families. Located on the east end of No. Forest Avenue, the hill's impressive grade makes for an exhilaratingly fast ride. The hill is located on the east end of No. Forest Avenue, next to Llocated at 3200 Laclede Station Road, Maplewood, MO, 63143.
Carondelet Park, South St. Louis City
The hill that I always loved as a kid was the one in Carondelet Park that overlooks the railroad tracks - nice steep hill - don't forget to jump off at the bottom before you hit the tracks.  Located at Grand and Holly hills, 63111
Suson Park, South St. Louis CountyThe length of the sledding hill in Suson Park is impressive, but the grade is a little lacking. It is a great choice for younger kids and the faint of heart. Located at 6073 Wells Road, St. Louis, MO, 63128.
Sioux Passage Park, Unincorporated North St. Louis County
The hill just south of the basketball court in this St. Louis County park has been dubbed "The Man Maker" by cross country runners who tackle it at local track meets. But while running up the hill is no picnic, sledding down it is a blast. The hill is long and steep and is usually not very crowded.
Located at 17930 Old Jamestown Rd., Florissant, MO, 63034.
