Sledding at Sharon Woods
I can (sort of) deal with the cold, if the sun is shining. I think a lot of you would agree! And with the perfect kind and amount of snow on the ground, what else would a family with children do on a sunny Sunday...but go sledding!
We live in Bexley, where there is apparently a sledding hill in someone's back yard (Miller's Hill).
Not quite ready to intrude (but I am sure we will venture there sometime soon), and tired of the mound we made ourselves in the yard, we headed to Sharon Woods Metro Park in Westerville today for some good sledding, on a real hill!
In fact, there were two sections of the same hill, one just for children ages 10 and under. This section is narrower, but as steep and safe (with hay bales as cushions) as the bigger hill just a few trees and shrubs over.
The kids (and grown-ups) had so much fun that we all forgot about how cold it actually was. Knowing that the snow is not going to melt any time soon...we know we will be back again soon.
Note: Do not enter at the main entrance on Cleveland Ave...instead, go just a little north, and take a left onto the street with a small sign that says "Sledding Hill" and proceed to the parking lot area. The sledding hills will be just to your left.
