    I heard that there is a good hill at Clinton-Como Park.

    Good sledding in Pickerington today. The hill is in the park next to City Hill. There seems to be a parking lot behind the senior center that gives access to the top. Decent size slope. Only complaint was that the people sledding didn’t quite understand the concept of walk on the side, sled in the middle.

    Big Run is SW Columbus has a great hill. It used to be a derby hill.

    It is pretty far back in the park.

    The only problem I could see with Big Run is getting back up the hill because you will go a LONG WAY.

    Looks like we might be getting some more snow this weekend.

    Who’s ready for some sledding? :D

    I grew up sledding at the spot on the Scioto river @ fishinger/riverside dr in Arlington
    They put bails of hay up so you don’t Sunny Bono on a tree or sled into the river lol
    Kids build snow ramps too, nothing like catching air on a plastic saucer :-D

    Our kids wanted to, but you can still see the top of the grass here on the northwest side. That didn’t stop a few folks from making mud tracks down Wilson Bridge hill.

    I just looked at the 10-day forecast — looks like we’re going to be pretty light on snow for January.

    We hit the small hill next to the rec center building at Indian Village this morning. Not a lot of snow on the ground, but fun enough for a four year old. ;)

    +1 to Big Run and Darby Creek. I recall the hill at Gantz Park in Grove City being nice as well.

    We went over to Clinton Como this morning. Sledding was a bit frustrating because the snow was so light. My uncle sent pictures from his foot+ of snow in Cleveland and my daughter is totally jealous.

    Watch out in that park, there’s a good chance the new gas line will go through there (it’s that or the research wetlands) and they’ll need to close off and disturb a big area. They’ll need a “layout area” where they weld together sections of pipe before boring them under the river.

    The property manager from parks and rec was at that recent meeting, complaining that anytime a project disturbs a park like this, it’s never fully restored. So I suggest you take some Before pictures now.
