Winter is a great time to get outdoors and have some fun.

- Pets and alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited on sledding hills.
- All sledders, snowboarders, and skiers are recommended to wear protective clothing, equipment, and helmets.

Safe sledding tips
- Choose a hill that has a gentle slope and that is free of obstacles such trees, signs, fences, rocks, river, parked or moving vehicles, railway track, and holes or jumps.
- Sled during the daylight or on a well lit hill.
- Dress properly, protecting hands, feet, and your face from the cold.
- Tuck in any scarves, strings, or long hats that could potentially catch on a rock or tree and cause strangulation or other serious inures.
- Sled by sitting or kneeling down. Never go down head first or standing up
- Check your sled for cracks or damage before use. Choose sleds that you can steer or stop.
- Have only the recommended number of passengers on a sled at one time.
- Wear a properly fitted ski or hockey helmet to protect against brain injuries.
- Wait until the path is clear before starting down the hill. This could help prevent you from running into another person on your way down.
- Move out of the way quickly if you fall or stop suddenly.
- Walk back up the side of the hill, away from other sledders.
- Parents should go on sleds with children under the age of 5.
- Have an adult supervise children while they are sledding.
- Hills that are too icy – you want to be able to stop if you need to;
- Inner tubes, crazy carpets, flying saucers, garbage bags and cardboard boxes- they are difficult to control.
- Overcrowding a sled or toboggan with to many riders
- Wear skates that fit are your size to avoid ankle and knee injuries. Skates that are too big can cause falls and other injuries.
- Skate in designated skating areas where the ice is known to be strong
- Check for cracks, holes, and debris on the ice.
- Be considerate other skates, including those who are new to the ice.
- Wear a helmet, especially young children who are learning how to skate.
- Skating alone
