    Best Sledding Hill in Des Moines Area?

    We go to Jordan Creek School in West Des Moines, its kind of like the bunny hill...

    What is the best hill in Des Moines?

    Growing up in Cedar Rapids - I think it was Jones Park that had a great Sledding hill, almost set up like a bob sled track - that was fast and fun.

    Urbandale has sledding hill next to the ice arena off of the interstate which is pretty good.

    I never even thought about that. Although, I'm not sure if they would let the general public in to go sledding. Seems like there would be a liability issue.

    Thanks for the suggestions, time to venture out. The Tanks by Camp Dodge were good cover for something else too, in the summer of course...

    Jordan Creek folks ourselves. There is a park over here that was designed to be a sledding hill but it is really a bit steep for kids.
