THE Place For Sledding In The Lou


There are lots of hills around town where kids can sled but there is just one classic venue. Art Hill is the long slope between the art museum and the Grand Lagoon in Forest Park, an artificial body of water that stretches a long way from the base. You would have to know it's there to see it but there is a line of hay bales at the bottom to keep speeding sledders from plopping into the freezing water.

It was very busy last weekend. Bare spots were starting to appear.

I was thinking while I was reading your comment that it would be tricky to keep from sliding into the water. I was glad you explained the bales of hay. I love this view!
