The first rumor of snow in the forecast means it's time to think about sledding. If the snow comes, you'll need a place to go. If it doesn't, at least you'll know where to go when the first snow comes. Here are five spots.
2210 S. Main St.
After a good snowfall, the wide hill behind the Harwelden Mansion is one of the most popular places in town. You'll be sure to find kids and adults enjoying their sleds and snowboards on this slippery slope.
Woodland Hills Mall
71st Street and Memorial Drive
The hill on the northeast side of Woodland Hills Mall is a perfect sledding spot. Located behind the green glass building that used to house Hardesty Regional Library, the long hill will appease those looking for the biggest thrill.
Roy Clark Elementary
3656 S. 103rd East Ave.
To the east of Roy Clark Elementary lay several hills surrounding the Tulsa United Soccer Club's fields. Sled down the slopes, or have someone pull you along the vast expanse of the fields' flat land.
Will Rogers High School
3909 E. Fifth Place
Whiz past other people on the snowy hills to the west of the school's main building.
6500 W. 21st St.
For those in west Tulsa, head over to Chandler Park, where the snow converts the grassy hills into a perfect place for cold-weather fun.
