Who says Lucas County is flat? Metroparks has lighted sledding hills at Side Cut and Pearson that stay open after dark for great family fun. Bring your sled or disc and enjoy the snow! Side Cut and Pearson will stay open until 8 p.m. every day when conditions are right for sledding. Daytime sledding at Blue Creek (once known as Nona France Park) is also fun during daylight hours.
Sledding at Side Cut
As you enter the park on a mild winter's day, you will notice a large group of kids gathering at the top of the sledding hill, waiting to race down the slippery slope. Bring your kids and enjoy a snow day at Side Cut. The Wagener Sledding Hill is located at the Silver Lake area at Side Cut in Maumee. The addition of lights allows the fun to continue after dark.
Sledding at Pearson
The tradition of sledding continues at Pearson Metropark, where lights also allow for nighttime sledding on the sledding hill. The hill is next to Parking Lot 1, just across from the lake, where you can skate under lights when the ice is safe.
Sledding at Blue Creek
The former Nona France Quarry on State Route 64 (Waterville Street) and Providence Street has one of the area's tallest sledding hills. Open 7 a.m. untl dark.
