LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Families looking to take part in sledding fun in the winter snow will have plenty of local parks to choose from, according to Louisville Parks and Recreation.
The six designated sledding hills will be open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on days where snow accumulation totals two to three inches.
Louisville Parks said hills will remain open as long as the hills remain adequately covered in snow.
The list of sledding hills can be seen below:
