As I'm wont to do on a snowy day in Tulsa, I hopped on Twitter and Facebook to see where the best sledding spots are in Green Country.
Growing up along Highway 97 between Sand Springs and Sapulpa, I was never at a loss for good sledding. The hills of Sand Springs and Berryhill are a kid's wildest dream come true after a few inches of snow. What I don't know, though, is where the best hills in Tulsa proper are hiding.
Here are a few answers from the Facebook- and Twitter-verse:
I live in Turner Park, and I've been hoping for a chance to sled over at Rogers High.... They have a field that is like a huge bowl!
Harwelden is normally a winner and there's a great two-sided hill on the back/north side of Cherry Hills at 36th between Lakewood and Joplin.
Check with McBirney Mansion. They have a great hill out back, and I think they sometimes do sledding there.
Ba on sixty first just east of bass pro shop [Not Tulsa proper, but close enough]
Grab your sled. It's time to head to the hills at the Bass Pro Shop in BA [Hey, if everybody else is jumping off a bridge, shouldn't you at least seriously consider it?]
Isn't this kind of like fishing holes? You don't really want to give the best spots away? P.S. It doesn't get much better than Chandler Park...really.
I imagine any city park/potential retention pond would be a great place to go sledding, too.
Got your own secret sledding spot? Go ahead, spill the beans and share the location in the comments. If I can manage to compile a good number of locations, I'll pull my partner in crime away from his studies to make a map for us.
I love a man who can make a map. Literally.
