Fort Hamilton Parkway and 75th Street, Bay Ridge
Don't let its size fool you—this park has a solid hill that's perfect on a snowy afternoon. There's also a playground, dog run, and year-round public bathroom.
Colonial Road and 68th Street, Sunset Park
On the boarder of Bay Ridge and Sunset Park, this park boasts not only an amazing skate park but a huge hill that seems to drop off into New York Harbor. It's an exhilarating ride, indeed. Be aware that there are no public restrooms in Owl's Head Park.
Near the Tennis House at Prospect Park West and 9th Street
The hills here attract sledders from Flatbush, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Windsor Terrace, and beyond. The most popular slope is near the old tennis house and the current picnic house (nearest entrance is on Prospect Park West and 9th Street), but if that's too crowded, try the one in the meadow off Grand Army Plaza or the one behind the Picnic House, at the Third Street entrance.
Shore Road and 97th Street, Bay Ridge
The big hill here is hard to miss. It may be a bit steep for young kids and/or beginner sledders. The good news: There are 3 year-round bathrooms in the park.
Interior of the park between 42nd and 43rd streets, Sunset Park
Here you'll find one of the highest points on all of Long Island (meaning the entire fish-shaped glacial land mass from Brooklyn to Montauk Point). Yes, this hill is a shredder's paradise, and if it's a clear day, Lady Liberty will be waving from the gorgeous vista of New York Harbor. Bathrooms are located in the Recreation Center.
