Other sledding opportunities in Lake County include sledding hills in Wadsworth, Lake Villa, Round Lake, Libertyville, Wauconda and Mundelein.
The sledding hill in Wadsworth is near Village Hall at Delany and Wadsworth roads and is open during the day.
Caboose Park in Lake Villa is home to a well-known sledding hill at Grand Avenue and Fairfield Road that has lights and sledding to 10 p.m.
Harts Hill in Round Lake is at Route 120 and Hart Road and also is lighted for night sledding.
There is a small sledding hill at Adler Park on Milwaukee Avenue near Buckley Road. There is also the Old School Forest Preserve sledding hill on St. Mary’s Road neat Old Rockland Road.
The Lake County Lakewood Forest Preserve near Wauconda has a sledding hill open until 9 p.m. at Route 176 just west of Fairfield Road.
Mundelein has two hills, one at Keith Mione Community Park, 1401 N. Midlothian Road, that is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and another at Diamond Lake Sports Complex, routes 60 and 83. Access for sledding is at the north end of the parking area.
For something a little different, the Mundelein Park District will have sledding races and “human” curling as part of its free Frosty Fun from 11 a.m. to noon Jan. 22 at Keith Mione Community Park.
