Sledding at Chestnut Ridge Park
This past Saturday we headed to Chestnut Ridge Park in Orchard Park to go sledding with my youngest son's Cub Scout Pack. Even though only a few families showed up, we had a great time. It wasn't too crowded so the kids could go down the hill multiple times. My daughter even convinced me to go down the hill a couple times...going down was fine, it was walking back up that was a pain!
One of the other families brought a wooden toboggan, since the newly refurbished toboggan chutes were open. The kids and my husband tried it out. I would have tried it out, but alas, they closed the chutes at 4:00 and we ran out of time. Maybe next time. We brought hot cocoa and snacks, but they also have a concession stand in the large casino building on the top of the hill.
