Best Kid-Friendly Hills for Sledding Along Route 1!

With snow continuing into this evening in Maryland and a snow day already called for Prince George’s County Public Schools, here’s a list of great places to go sledding along Route 1 as recommended by Route One Fun readers themselves! Know of other places? Enter your recommendation in comments below and I’ll add to the list ASAP. (I know reader Jo Ann Capp was seeking recommendations for places in New Carrollton!)

Sledding in Cheverly, Maryland

Caseyan Dave Kneipp recommends sledding at Cheverly Hospital Hill.

Sledding in College Park, Maryland

“Alligator Park” at the end of College Ave near the Metro, per reader Kerry Kidwell-Slak. (I think this is also where the Old Town Playground is located.)

Jennifer Riggs shared a number of great options in College Park, including: Off the Trolley Trail in Calvert Hills (smaller hill good for young sledders), the UMD hill from the Chapel and Berwyn Heights Elementary, too!

Sledding in Hyattsville, Maryland

Pamela ONeal recommends sledding at Nicholas Orem Middle School as well as Edmonston Hill, by the creek.

Sledding in Mount Rainier, Maryland

Katie Yaeger Rotramel recommends sledding at Barnard Hill Park, sandwiched between Bunker Hill Road and Eastern Avenue. Google Maps Link here for Barnard Hill Park.

Sledding in Riverdale Park, Maryland

Readers Katie Monge, Alison Spain and Susan Sargent all recommended  sledding at Riversdale Mansion, with Katie sharing “there’s a big hill on the east side of the mansion. We had our 4-year old on it last year but it’s a fairly steep 25-foot hill. Great for little speed!”

Sledding in University Park, Maryland

Abby McDermott recommends the hill behind the University Park Elementary School.
