slides: Worcester County’s Best Sledding Spots

Wednesday, January 22, 2014


Despite a temporary warm-up this past weekend, it is snowing once again in Worcester County, which means its time to pull out the sleds, toboggans and tubes.

Here are some of Central Mass residents' favorite go-to spots.

Prev Next

Green Hill Park

Worcester’s largest park is always a top destination for an afternoon of non-stop sledding. The rolling hills offer sledders a variety of runs - kids will wear themselves out before wearing out any sledding tracks.
Location: 50 Skyline Drive, Worcester, MA

Prev Next

Hadwen Park

Once a small ski area in the 1960s, Hadwen Park’s slopes are only for serious thrill-seekers. This ride will be worth the trek back to the top of the hill again and again, but definitely remember a helmet.
Location: Two minutes from Webster Square on Heard and Knox Streets, Worcester, MA

Hills on the college grounds are a popular family option for sledding. It is parking-accessible, but beware of trees.
Location: 670 West Boylston Street, Worcester, MA

Prev Next

Dunn Pond Skate Park

This beautiful park is a winter sports hot spot. If sledding gets tiresome, try out cross-country skiing or ice skating on the pond. Better yet, the visitor’s center usually has a fire going inside.
Location: 289 Pearl Street, Gardner, MA

Prev Next

Westborough Country Club

This is a popular community spot for sledding, whether you are 4 or 40. The hill is huge and open to the public once snow hits, just watch out for home-made jumps!
Location: 275 Turnpike Road, Westborough, MA

Prev Next

Chocksett Middle School

The hills behind the school offer variety for any type of sledder. Speed addicts will enjoy the steeper portions of the slope, while families can stick to less intimidating runs. Great accessibility to the public.
Location: 40 Boutelle Road, Sterling, MA

Prev Next

Burgess Elementary School

Like Chocksett, the Burgess grounds offer hills varying in steepness. The north hill is better suited for adrenaline junkies, but there is a short, moderate hill as well. Venture down past the softball fields for a milder beginner’s run.
Location: 45 Burgess School Road, Sturbridge, MA

Prev Next

Cherry Hill Farm

Cherry Hill’s Ice Cream stand has become a summer family favorite, but locals know the sledding hills next door are some of the best around. Sledders will love the open hills and parents will appreciate the lack of trees.
Location: 826 Leominster Road, Lunenburg, MA
