1/ Forest Park
Art Hill and Suicide Hill on Fine Arts Drive and Lagoon Drive in Forest Park live up to their names. For a smooth ride, choose the former and if you have a need for speed, the latter.

2/ Deer Creek Park
On North Forest Avenue in Webster Groves, these hills will send you flying in only a few inches of snow.

3/ Clifton Park
Sled among the historic homes of Clifton Heights around the pond inhabited by a family of ducks.

4/ Lyon Park
This little-known park in the shadow of Budweiser Brewery is equipped with kid-friendly open spaces, made for sledding.
