Does the anticipated first snow of 2021 in NOVA this weekend have you dusting off your sleds and stocking up on hot chocolate? Wondering where the best hills are? We’ve put together a list of some great spots in Northern Virginia to hit with the kids.
Westgate Park, 7500 Magarity Rd, McLean: did you know that behind the second baseball field at the Park is a great sledding hill?!
“Mount Reston”, 1625 Wiehle Ave, Reston: called “Mount Reston” by locals and located behind the Unitarian Church on Wiehle Ave.
Greenway Heights Park, 8203 Riding Ridge Place, Great Falls
The “Big Hill” at Wolf Trap National Park: in the front by the box office.
Mason District Park, 6621 Columbia Pike, Annandale: this one was chosen by Fairfax County Park Authority as “one of the best places in Fairfax County to go sledding”! It’s at the end of Meadow Trail.
Cardinal Forest Park, 6121 Roxbury Ave, Springfield: along the sewer easement, between Carleigh Parkway and Roxbury Avenue…typically a quiet park until the snow falls!
Lake Fairfax Park, 400 Lake Fairfax Dr, Reston: another hidden gem…a short but steep hill behind the picnic area restrooms!
Jefferson Manor Park, 2909 Farmington Dr, Alexandria: located off Telegraph Road…the hill at the shelter.
Do you have a favorite hill? Are there others you would recommend? Let us know! We all could use some fresh air and outdoor activity so get out there and have some fun! (Remember to be safe and follow the rules of the parks.)
