Best Places for Sledding in Essex County NJ

Sledding is Fun!!!It’s SNOWING!!!!

Pull out the boots and gloves, grab the sled, load up the car and head for the best places for sledding before anyone else gets there!!!! 

Since I was a little girl, my three favorite places to go sledding in Essex County were at:
1. The top of Francis A. Byrne Golf Course at 1100 Pleasant Valley Way in West Orange. The walk from the parking lot was always a killer, but once you were there it was great…and not very crowded.
2. South Mountain Reservation. Drive along Brookside Dr. between Glen and South Orange Ave. and you will see cars parked along the way. Try to find a spot and grab your toboggan for a glide through a winter wonderland.

3. Cameron Field in Meadowland Park just below North Ridgewood Ave and above South Orange Village. You can park at the top or the bottom of the hill…watch out for people walking up for their next ride as you fly down fast and furious.
Don’t forget to load up on hot Chocolate!!!
Where is your favorite place?

      New Jersey Sledding report from the Livingston|Maplewood real estate expert… I love it! I prefer warm, but if it is going to be cold, there is no better place to be than on a sledding hill or a ski slope!

      This post makes me want to hop in my car and travel 20 hours to Essex New Jersey for some fun sledding. Used to love the parks as a child growing up in New York!
