Winter is here, and Nassau County is covered in snow. We are lucky enough to have some of the best sledding hills on Long Island right here in our beautiful Nassau County parks. So take the kids, grab your sleds and a thermos of hot chocolate and get ready to fly down some of the best snow hills Nassau County has to offer. Below are 5 of our favorite sledding spots in and around Nassau County:
Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale – Will open up some of the golf courses for sledding and has beautiful walking trails that are used for track meets in the spring and summertime. The trails turn into a winter wonderland after a deep snowfall and are perfect for a brisk walk or for pulling little ones on snow- sleds.
Cedar Creek Park in Seaford/ Wantagh – Is always busy after it snows in Nassau County. Tons of kids flock to snow sled at Cedar Creek, so get there early for the best sledding! If the snow is packed down, the afternoon is the perfect time to build a snow fort.
Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn – This park is a bit smaller and so are the sledding hills, but it’s still one of the top sledding spots in Nassau County. So bundle up and make some winter memories!
Eisenhower Park in East Meadow/ Westbury – The sledding hills are long and wide and have a gentle downward slope. It’s named Sled Hill and is the perfect spot for the younger set and most of the sledders are ages 10 and under. Don’t forget to toss an extra set of waterproof mittens in your backpack.
Heckscher State Park in Huntington – Spacious and wide sledding hills can be found around the park and after a big snowstorm the park is at it’s most beautiful. This is one of the North Shore’s most well-know sledding spots, and an environmental gem. So bring your camera, you may get lucky and see one of the white-tailed deer that the park is famous for!
