  5. Joy says:

    Knoll Country Club in Parsippany, Morris County, has a few great hills to sled on. Have fun! Hope to see you there!

  6. Twin Lights Historic Site says:

    Please be aware that Twin Lights Historic Site in Highlands, NJ is NOT a recreational park, it is a historic site and therefore sleigh riding is NOT allowed on site. Please remove us from your list, thank you.

    Floods Hill off of Valley/S.Valley in South Orange NJ, #1 Hotspot for all Orange/Maplewood residents you know what I’m talking about right infront of the Orange Club. Another good spot is Baltusrol CC on summits side where we all hop over the fence for a nice golf course like sled ride.

  8. Paul M says:

    Near us in Monmouth county its Howell Public Library. Long and wide with great parking top and bottom and always a bunch of people there.

  9. Rita says:

    Burlington County has a great hill in Maple Shade called Steinhauer Hill. Everyone still sleds there!

  10. Jim M says:

    Camden County.
    There is a sunken baseball/cricket field, with a huge hill on 2 sides. Also no fence around field. I don’t know the name of the field but it’s the corner of Fairmont Drive and Johnson Road, Gloucester Township.

  11. PV says:

    Woodbridge community center is not the place for sledding. Cops said sledding is NOT allowed here!

  12. Ann says:

    Although I love most information like this, sometimes it is difficult when places end up bombarded with people–places that were usually “less crowded.” One of the sledding spots in Union County is where we go with many friends from town. I truly hope that it doesn’t become overly crowded now. Similarly, a favorite summer spot in town was mentioned on this website or one like it and it went from a great mini local cooling off place to chaos with too many kids. We will see I guess. Either way, have safe fun everyone.

  13. nlight says:

    Really. There is no sledding hill in Atlantic Highlands. There are two great hills at the HIGHLANDS Elementary School in Highlands.

  14. Victoria says:

    For the record High Point state park in sussex county is located in Wantage Nj NOT montague.

  15. meghan ciniglio says:

  16. lfl says:

  17. Tom Quinn says:
