Best Hills to Sled for Free in St Paul, MN

Living in St. Paul, MN my whole life I know a thing or two about sledding… for free. Although, growing up I had the privilege of having a perfectly steep hill in my backyard at my parent’s place. But since my parent’s have built a deck in their backyard, sledding on their hill would probably send us slamming to the house.

The search for safe outdoor winter activities for my restless and active boys during this time has become something to look forward to in the midst of circumstances. Luckily, we were able to take a break from our cabin fever and enjoy the outdoors for the sake of our sanity.

According to the City of St Paul, the following are the top 4 steep hills to go sledding for free are:

Sledding Hill LocationRating
Baker Park
209 W. Page St.
Saint Paul, MN 55107
Battle Creek Recreation Center
75 S. Winthrop St.
Saint Paul, MN 55119
Highland Park Community Center
1978 Ford Pkwy.
Saint Paul, MN 55116
McMurray Athletic Fields
1155 Jessamine Ave. W.
Saint Paul, MN 55103

Most recently we visited Battle Creek Recreation Center, totally would recommend it. The hill is steep, there’s lighting at the top of the hill for safety, and there’s not a ton of people. I would suggest going sledding when the snow is ample and fresh for a better experience.
