Ann Arbor offers a number of great sledding hills! Which is your favorite? We have reviewed several hills over the last few years.
Ann Arbor Sledding Profiles
Update we have verified that the Leslie Science Center hill is available.
We have a tiny hill in our backyard which is perfect for my daughter when it is still snowing and road conditions are not good. (It also allows me to stay indoors).
Other Ann Arbor Sledding Hills
A few times I have suggested trying out new hills, but my husband prefers to go with the known (and the proximity to home helps). This winter I think we will give some other hills a try. Note, sledding hills at schools should only be used when school and before/after care are not in session.
Slauson Middle School
Several readers yesterday mentioned the hill at Slauson Middle School (1019 W. Washington St). This was the first time that I have heard Slauson mentioned, so we will add it to our list to check out this winter.
Several readers also discussed Buhr Park (2751 Packard Rd) as a place to go sledding. From what I understand, the hill is better for younger children.
Leslie Park has a sledding hill as well. However, one of our readers has recommended not trying to drive to it without a 4WD. Several cars were stuck in a December 2016 storm.
Ann Arbor Open School
Ann Arbor Open School (920 Miller Ave) has two hills that offer sledding fun. Mack Pool is attached to the school and is open during the winter providing bathroom access.
When we visited Leslie Science & Nature Center, we drove by Northside and there were some people sledding in front of the school.
