Best Places for Sledding in the Bronx


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.

Crotona Park

-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!
