Hummel Park

Hummel Park

Paul Ruster Park

11300 E Prospect St., Indianapolis

The incline is just the right height for all ages to enjoy. No trees or other obstacles allows sledders to pick up speed quickly and the climb back to the top isn’t so brutal.

Washington Township Park

435 Whipple Lane, Avon

This Avon park has a large sledding hill and a large playground to play in afterward. The best spot for sledding at this location is located right behind the large shelter, and is pretty steep for the adventure seekers.
