Bolingbrook's Top Sledding, Skiing and Skating Spots
Looking for some quality hills in Bolingbrook to sled now that the snow has hit? Or some ponds to play some pick up hockey? We have all the answers.
The snow has FINALLY hit in Bolingbrook.
Check out some of these local, well known—or not so well known—spots around town to take advantage of winter sports.
- Delaware Circle, located on the north side of Delaware Drive, has a great sledding hill at the end of the subdivision. This was one of my favorite spots growing up because of the steep angle of the hill.
- The large hill behind village hall is also a great spot. I would recommend using the east side of the hill though because sliding down the west may leave you headed straight for a pond. But if you have ice skates on, it may make for a cool YouTube video!
- Just east of village hall, on Briarcliff Road is Meyer Park. There is a steep hill near a maintenance building that I have seen children sledding on. But make sure to be cautious of the parking lot and the street that border it.
- For those on the west side of town, the Naperville Park District has two sites that are very close by. Weigand Riverfront Park on South Washington Street and Springbrook Crossings Park on Plainfield Naperville Road.
- Within the Four Lakes condominium complex off Route 53 in Lisle is a small bunny hill for skiing and snow boarding. The site just opened for the season on Thursday. Check out their website for pricing and times. http://www.skifourlakes.com/
- Those looking to cross-country ski or snowshoe can access the Bolingbrook Park District's DuPage River Greenway from Royce Road to Hidden Lakes Trout Farm. This section of the trail is left unpaved for these winter sports. The Hidden Oaks Nature Center will also be offering snowshoeing classes throughout the winter season.
- The Rocket Ice Arena in Bolingbrook offers many open skating times, some with themes.
- It is also important to note that those wishing to skate outdoors should heed the No Swimming and No Skating signs posted around the ponds in town. These are here for safety purposes. Those wishing to skate outdoors should contact the Bolingbrook Park District for a list of manmade outdoor rinks.
