If you’re looking for some good spots to head to the next time it snows, we’ve rounded up a list of some recommended hills in the Bronx. We’ll continue to add to this list as more are suggested or we discover new places- so be sure to bookmark this post.
-Fulton Avenue and Crotona Park North
This is actually the Bronx location for NYC Park’s Snow Days- which is a day of free organized recreation in several parks throughout the city. Activities may include supervised safe sledding (there will be sleds available at each snow day site), snowman building contests, snow angel contests, friendly snowball fights, music, and complimentary hot chocolate. We headed here on a quiet snow day and had the place to ourselves!
St. Mary’s Park
-The Rock in St. Mary’s Park
This spot got more than one vote when we asked around. Located at 450 St Ann’s Ave, this is a popular location for snow fun. There’s also an indoor recreation center that locals can become members of with programming throughout the week.
Franz Sigel Park
-160th, between Grand Concourse and Walton Avenue
For those near the Grand Concourse, head over to Franz Segel Park for some snow day fun.
-West 232nd Street, between Johnson and Riverdale Avenues
Another spot that showed up in several city roundups was Ewen Park in Riverdale.
Van Cortlandt Park
-Broadway and Jerome Avenue
For those around Van Cortlandt Park, head to the hill around Broadway and Jerome for some fun. But Van Cortlandt also boasts plenty of flat land to run around, build snowmen, and enjoy playing in the snow too.
-Bronx Park at Lydig Avenue
A fun hill for the little ones can be found at Bronx Park at Lydig Avenue. There you’ll find plenty of families enjoying the snow on colorful sleds.
-At 172nd Street, between Teller Avenue and Clay Avenue
According to NYC Parks, the best spot for sledding is at the interior of the park at 172nd Street between Teller Avenue and Clay Avenue
-Anywhere between 220th and 230th streets along Bronx Boulevard
With plenty of hill between 220th and 230th streets at Bronx Boulevard, get ready for hours of fun.
