Getting the sled out

Barringer Hill in Cherokee Park is one of the most popular destinations for sledders in the Louisville area.

The annual press release we issue each year reminding folks about our sledding hills that are open for business when snow reaches 2-3 inches deep varies little from year-to-year. In fact, each year when it’s issued we joke about “dusting it off” and sending it back out with just a few minor changes.

Despite the fact that little has changed in where we encourage people to sled — and how to do it safely — this particular release always invokes a lot of discussion .  Almost everyone who grew up in Louisville has a story about where they used to sled, with whom, and where.

Where are some of your favorite places to go sledding? Do you have any special memories of sledding with family and friends in Louisville that you’d care to share with us?
