Sledding Hill Known As: " Art Hill "

Directions: Art Hill at Forest Park Art Museum (#1 Fine Arts Dr.)

Comments: Parking in Art Museum parking lot. Day and night sled riding. Sometimes a barrel with firewood is provided. There are hay bails at the end of the slope to keep sledders from going into the lake (not a problem).

2009 WEBMASTER NOTE: Since I (the webmaster of this website) live in the St. Louis area, this is one of a few sledding hills that my son and I frequent on snow days. If you see any of our "unique" sleds on Art Hill, then that's probably us. See them all by clicking here. Stop by and say "hi"! Also, we just added sled lights to some of our snow sleds for the 2009/2010 winter season, so if you go night sledding at Art Hill and see sleds or snow tubes with lights on them (very unique), then it may be a sure bet that's us having fun.

JAN. 8, 2010 UPDATE: The video filmed Jan. 7th at Art Hill called "It's a Marshmallow Word" is now complete. It is listed above in the videos for this hill or you can click here. Enjoy!

JAN. 21, 2011 UPDATE: The video filmed Jan. 21st at Art Hill with Heidi Glaus from KSDK Channel 5. Click here.

Webmaster's Review: Overall, I would rate this sled riding hill a conservative . It has the length and width of a great sledding hill, but is lacking a bit I think. If it were a bit steeper and a long run out at the bottom, then this definitely would be a 4.5 star sledding hill. I like it equally as the Blanchette Park hills, which I gave a conservative 4 stars also too because my son liked them. 5 star hills are hard to come by, and I don't think the local area has any of those to offer. Go to Utah for a 5 star hill.

Sledding Hill Known As: " Suicide Hill "

Directions: Suicide Hill is located on Lagoon Drive, a quarter of a mile east of Skinker Blvd., on the fairway of the public golf course in Forest Park, next to the Cascade Waterfall. If you watch the 2nd half of this video here, then you can see it being sledded on.

Comments: There are 2 edges of this sledding hill, one being about 25 degrees and the "suicide edge" being about 45 degrees. Since the golf course was re-graded in 2004, the sudden drop may have been tapered off on the "suicide edge" (Review to come). The hill is about 60 ft. tall. I spoke to an employee at the golf pro shop, who gave me an Ok to sled there. (there were kids already going down the hill today). Looking at the photo the hill may not seem too steep, but the "suicide" section is the steeper grade on the left side of the picture. Checking a topo map, the hill is 20 or 30 feet higher than Art Hill, and ends in a flat area.

Webmaster's Review: When I happened upon this hill for the review, I instantly thought, now THAT's a sled riding hill! Being less than a mile from Art hill (a brisk walk away), I thought this sledding hill to have speed written all over it. Yeah, it's not too wide, or even really long, but the slope was all that mattered to me. The location being so so close to Art hill was a plus too, since if one got tired of Art Hill, and wanted some speed, then they could hop right on over to "Suicide Hill", which is right down the road. Therefore, overall I would rate this sled riding hill .

Directions: Sledding hill at Mathilda Park. The park is on Mathilda Road which is located off Gravois Road in Affton. Federhofer's Bakery is on the corner of Gravois and Mathilda at 9005 Gravois Rd.. Turn onto Mathilda and go about 1/5th of a mile. The park enterance will be on the left.

Comments: There is a public parking area and the sledding hill can be seen from the parking area. You must walk across a small walk-bridge to get to it. There is a small creek at the bottom of the hill, but it flattens out at the bottom, so you usually stop before you get that far.

Webmaster's Review: This sledding hill poses some hazards due to a few trees that are at the bottom of the sledding hill (see photo). Before one would get to the trees though, there is a bump in the land that would provide for some airtime, but may cause one to lose control and veer off into one of the trees. Therefore, please BEWARE! Also, as the submitter stated, there is a very small creek at the bottom of the sledding hill which could make for a splash if the water isn't frozen, but you should be able to stop before reaching it. I would call this more of a trickle than a creek though. The slope doesn't look to steep (~30 degrees), but from the top it looks better looking down. Overall, I would rate this sled riding hill due to the hazards and slight slope.

Webmaster's Review: This park is like a 3 sided bowl with a pool on the 4th side. At first, you would think, kind of sounds like Blanchette Park with the bowl theme, but don't be so quick to judge. This park has many trees within it and the grade isn't as steep. One would also have to pay to park along the streets that encompass this park at a rate of .25 cents per half hour. While, from the tracks in the snow, once could tell that this site draws some sledders, I would give this sled riding hill an overall rating of .

Comments: If you watch the later half of this video, then you will see this hill being sledded on. There's no guarantee that the ramp seen in the video will be there when you arrive (but it is a pretty cool idea). A snow tube would have cushioned the landing better than a plastic sled.

Comments: Lots of parking in the park by tennis courts. Great sledding hill with great speed, but there are a few trees in the way, and a creek at the end of the run that you have to watch out for.

2011 Webmaster Update: I had received an email on 1-22-2011 stating:

"Due to the installation of an amphitheater at the bottom of the hill, coupled with a bunch of Ellisville park or city council killjoys worried about getting sued, sledding is no longer technically allowed at Bluebird Park in Ellisville, MO. Large "No Sledding" signs are posted at numerous locations, and while these signs didn't stop a sizable group of sledders from gathering the other day after a recent snow, a police officer came about an hour after our arrival and dispersed the gathered crowd."

Therefore, being the webmaster of this site, I recommend that you don't sled here!

Sledding Hill Known As: " Killer Hill "

Webmaster's Review: Why this is coined the name "Killer Hill" is beyond me. Overall, I would rate this sled riding hill .

9-1-2010 UPDATE: The name Killer Hill comes from an urban legend. The hill has a telephone poll on the right side and legend has it that a sledder hit the pole on the way down and died from a head injury which frankly was very possible. I knew a few kids who had direct hits and came out it alive but shaken up.

Directions: Sledding hill located in St. Ferdinand Park (Hwy. 67/N. Lindbergh and St. Ferdinand Rd.)

Comments: There is a pond at the bottom, but usually when there is enough snow to sled on the pond is frozen, so if you do slide out onto it you can walk back to solid ground. About halfway down the sledding hill is a concrete ledge that usually has a picnic table on it, but in the winter it makes an excellent ramp to get some airtime on your sled. It is to one side so you can either hit it or not. There is a pavilion at the top of the sledding hill, but parking is at the bottom.

Directions: Sledding hill on the Fairview Elementary School property, which is located at 7047 Emma Ave. The sledding hill is near the track. Click here for a satellite location of the sledding hill. You can park along one of the side streets along College Ave. that has a view of the fenced in track hill. There is an opening in the fence with steps down to access the sledding hill.

Comments: This sledding hill is where I, the webmaster, used to go sled riding when I lived in Jennings, MO at age 9. This was back in 1979, but from what I can see, this sledding hill area hasn't changed much. From the satellite photo that goes with this posting, it looks as if the sledding hill is still that same one that I remember. This sledding hill is 2 tiered. The top of the it has a fence that encompasses the school track property and runs along College Ave. From the fence, I remember sliding down this steep incline for it to level out for a short bit and then incline down again. I remember the leveled out part had a slight hump in locations which would allow for some air time.

Webmaster's Review: Well, arriving at this hill after 25 years brought back some good ol' memories. It hasn't changed. Overall, I would give this sled riding hill .

Directions: Sledding is available in Kirkwood Park near the corner of Monroe Dr and Ampitheater Dr. Sledding takes place down the hill that ends onto Monroe Drive.

Comments: The park district has set up some hay bails that help you to not go out into the street or hit trees, however, there are some openings that allow you to extend your ride but may also allow you into the street. There is almost no traffic except for other sledders, so this isn't too much of an issue, and by that time, you are generally going slow enough that stopping yourself isn't an issue. Park on Monroe on the opposite side of the sledding, or on Ampitheater drive.

Sledding Hill Known As: " Man-Maker Sledding Hill "

Directions: The sledding hill is located at Sioux Passage Park, which is at Old Jamestown and Vaile roads in unincorporated North County. Once in the park, the hill is south of the basketball court and east of the big square parking lot. The sledding hill extends from the trail to the basket ball court down to the parking lot and maybe even further.

Comments: Growing up the nickname of the sledding hill was called Man-Maker. This sledding hill had a long huge slope where you probably got going 15 to 20 mph - the thrill was huge! And that walk back up as tiring as it was was worth every ounce of F-U-N! The only real hazards are the trees that surround the parking lot because by time you get to those trees you could still be going 5 to 10 mph and the sudden stop can leave a mark. Sioux Passage is a designated Winter Sports area with snowmobiling, sled riding and cross-country skiing permitted. This is probably one of the best kept snow sledding secrets in St. Louis.

Webmaster's Review: I think that this sled riding hill is lacking in the slope area, eventhough the length is great. Overall, I would rate this sled riding hill .

Directions: Sledding hill next to Deer Creek Park at the east end of N. Forest Ave. (Take Summit Ave. north, then right on N. Forest Ave.). N. Forest Ave. will dead end at a loop turn around (where people can park) by an open field, the sledding hill in on the right.

Comments: Some parking near top of the sledding hill, but most park along street or the nearby Deer Creek Park; N. Forest is not a busy street. The street is very often blocked by cars on snow days.

Webmaster's Review: This sledding hill was a great surprise to me when I arrived at it. Eventhough that we didn't have a lot of snow today, the 2-3 inches did the trick, but quickly turned this sled riding hill to brown snow. 4 inches plus would have been perfect, but you can't have it all. The steepness of this sledding hill and the moguls (Bumpy dips) made for a GREAT FAST ride with airtime down this hill. It may be lacking in the length department, but the steep slope makes up for it, and then some. I will DEFINITELY visit this sledding hill again on a heavy snow day. Overall, I would rate this sled riding hill due to the bumps and speed gained.
