Sledding in Parks
Every neighborhood has its favorite sledding hill for the snowy season, but sometimes adventurous New Yorkers like to explore a new park or compare their slope to other popular ones in the city.
Parks has plenty of ways to help you keep fit this winter. From organized programs like Shape Up New York, to swim programs, to low-priced recreation center memberships, there are lots of opportunities to stay active during the cold weather.
