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!

Holmdel Park, Holmdel, NJ 

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!

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!
