Astoria Park, Astoria

Steeped to perfection, Pilgrim Hill in Central Park is the be-all and end-all of sledding in the city. This is no secret, so be sure to look out for fellow sledders (and potential obstacles) on your way down!
Prospect Park’s Long Meadow reigns as the single longest stretch of uninterrupted meadow in any urban park in the nation. Check out the gentle rolling hills designed especially by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux! Plus, nearby is the Picnic House for hot chocolate, the perfect followup to a day well-spent on the slopes.
While Astoria Park may be more widely known for its swimming pool (the oldest and largest in New York City), its slopes certainly do not disappoint. Bring the whole family for winter fun!
