Saturday snow day is perfect for sledding, and the first time in years we had perfect conditions: weekend snow, fluffy flakes, lots of power.
And with temperatures expected to stay below freezing throughout the day, Sunday could also be set up for sledding.
Prepare for your outing with a helmet, a steerable sled and other stuff to make sure you end up at the bottom of the hill, not in the ER.
Best places to sled in Raleigh, Cary, Wake Forest
WRAL has specified some of the best luge venues. If you live in Raleigh, Cary, or Chapel Hill, there’s sure to be one near you.
- Bond Park, 801 High House Road, Cary. It’s one of the big ones. Just get there early to get a piece of snow.
- Dorothea Dix Hospital on Western Boulevard in Raleigh. A longtime favorite for many in Raleigh.
- Fletcher Park, 802 Clay St., Raleigh and also near the intersection of Peace Street and Glenwood Avenue.
- Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road, Wake Forest. I haven’t heard of people sledding here. But when I did a review from that I thought there were some pretty decent sledding opportunities here.
- Duke’s Park, 106 W. Knox St. in Durham, is a good neighborhood (watch out for trees). .
- Chapel Hill Community Center, 120 South Estes Dr. in Chapel Hill. There is a nice little hill next to the playground.
There are plenty of neighborhood favorites in Bien.
After your day outdoors, warm up with a hot family drink or treat yourself to some ice cream.
