There’s snow in the forecast, and the kiddos are at home for what seems like eternity. And last year it didn’t snow once! We know they’re going to be extra excited to get out there and sled! We actually put this guide together a couple years ago to highlight some spots throughout Monmouth County to take the family, so just make sure to check before you go with the township for any COVID-19 guidelines. Be SAFE and ENJOY!
Monmouth Battlefield State Park, Manalapan, NJ
Located on State Business 33 in Manalapan, Monmouth Battlefield State Park is a great spot for sledding and cross-country skiing. Good for all ages!
Located at 44 Longstreet Rd. in Holmdel. We’ve spent many hours at Holmdel Park in the winter on the sleds, as it’s perfect for the whole family. Definitely a favorite!
PNC Bank Arts Center and Telegraph Hill Park, Holmdel, NJ
Right down the road from Holmdel Park, this spot is a good alternative if the park is a little too crowded!
Howell Public Library, Howell, NJ
A well known spot for sledding in the area, and good for all ages! The library is located at 318 Old Tavern Rd. in Howell.
Cheesequake State Park, Matawan, NJ
Located adjacent to the Hooks Creek Lake parking area, this is a great spot if you live in the Matawan/Aberdeen area. Cheesequake is technically Middlesex County, but close enough for the family to have a fun couple hours sledding!
Located at 3 Crescent Place, Oceanport, this spot is part of our amazing Monmouth County Park system. The hill is a family favorite for sledding in the winter months!
West Park, Rumson, NJ
West Park runs along both sides of Rumson Rd. at the entrance to the Sea Bright Bridge. Bundle up, it’s extra cold closer to the water!!
Glennwood Cemetery/Aldi, West Long Branch, NJ
This hill is located behind the Aldi in West Long Branch. Great for all ages!
Be SAFE and have FUN! Happy Sledding!
