Did You Know? Sledding Hills In Central Ohio

Did You Know?

When the snow falls this winter, have your toboggans ready to enjoy one or more of these sledding hills!

Metro Parks Sledding Hills

The Metro Parks system is well-patrolled by park rangers who have first aid training, plus the hills set aside for sledding have hay bales around trees and obstacles which makes them a far safer option. Metro Parks also feature nearby parking and restrooms for their sledding hills.

Battelle Darby Creek (the canoe access point and Ohio to Erie trailhead)
Blacklick Woods Golf Courses (east of the Golf Course Activities Building)
Highbanks (Big Meadows Picnic Area)
Scioto Audubon (between the bocce courts and the Columbus Rotary obstacle course)
Scioto Grove (park at the Arrowhead Picnic Area)
Sharon Woods (sledding hill entrance is north of the main park entrance, on Cleveland Avenue)
Walnut Woods (a kiddie’s sledding hill in the Buckeye Area, close to the dog parks)


Community parks also offer great sledding in the area, and have similar safety barriers, but may not have on-site restrooms or personnel.

The best sledding is LEGAL sledding!  Please don’t trespass on private property to find good snow-covered hills.  Be a good neighbor, don’t sled where you aren’t allowed!

As always, this list was accurate as of publication time, but circumstances do sometimes change, so please check before making plans to sled.
