There is finally snow on the ground so that means WINTER IS HERE! Before it melts, grab your sled, snowboards, or tubes and head out to one of the snowy hills in the Stateline for some fun.

There are so many places around Rockford and the surrounding area where you and your family can go sledding. Please keep in mind that when sledding at these locations, it is at your own risk. Also, don’t forget to wear a hat, gloves, scarf and to dress warm! Unfortunately, sledding is no longer allowed at Aldeen Park in Rockford and Sand Park in Loves Park.

Note: Sledding is from dusk to dawn.
