Columbia Heights’ Favorite Sledding Hill

The sledding hill at this park is popular with both kids and parents because sledders can choose between several grades from very steep to gentle. Families can park in the parking lot at the bottom of the hill by the playground and walk up or on the street at the top of the hill. Sometimes street parking is hard to find on particularly nice sledding days. We include this hill our list of the Twin Cities Guide to the Best Sledding Hills.
