Park Test Files #2, Blizzard 2009

And so on Sunday AM we set out amidst 11” of fresh powder...destination Central Park...ETA...uh, somewhere between 15 minutes and never depending on how the Urban Assault Stroller (UAS) handled the towering snow banks and unplowed sidewalks. Thankfully the UAS was up to the task, and it even mounted our new sleds supremely well.
The most commonly referenced sledding hills in Central Park are Pilgrim Hill (72nd & 5th) and Cedar Hill (78th & 5th). My test team did not feel the need to go past The Dairy (65th & mid-Park), which has a gentle slope good for younger kids. Our greatest success though was just marching around the park itself. The streets and paths had been swept, not scraped, leaving the perfect surface for dragging our new Paris 626 Toddler Sleds. And obviously the Park itself was simply stunning to see. See the rest of our pictures here.
It was a great adventure for us and holiday season kickoff, and it inspired us to make sure that iParks NY includes all the best sledding sites in the 5 boros. Send your thoughts to reviews@iParksNY.com! And Happy Holidays!
