Sledding and Fresh Air are Free

Sledding and Fresh Air are Free

We have had quite a dry spell this winter in the snow department but now that we finally have some, it is time to take advantage of the free sledding around the area.

I see the hills by Union High School dotted with kids and parents out there having a great time, getting exercise and lots of fresh air. Just a short distance from Union, there is a big hill at Richmond Park, long known for its sledding and tubing and it has been busy each time I drive by. Like someone said recently, if you don’t have a sled or tube, get a piece of cardboard and enjoy this sport.

If parks near you do not have hills there is still the opportunity to do some cross country skiing, a great exercise.

Take advantage of all the snow while it is here.
