Something tells us you’ll be doing a lot of sledding this year. When you’ve worn our your go-to hill, here are some of the most well-known places to go sledding around Milwaukee:

MKE With Kids Top Picks

Whitnall Park

5879 S. 92nd St., Franklin, WI 53132

Located near the Boerner Botanical Gardens, this 400 foot sledding hill is free to the public and lit up at night. There is also a smaller hill for the little ones north of the main hill. There is ample parking in the large lot off of 92nd street, and you can enjoy warm concessions in the Whitnall Clubhouse (not available in 2021). Lit up at night from 4:30 – 8:30 p.m.

TBD in 2021: Don’t miss your chance to ride with the Door County Sled Dogs, a recreational dog sled team made up of rescued dogs and run by an all volunteer organization. Sled rides are typically offered in Whitnall Park on the weekends for all ages on a first come, first served basis. You’ll get to visit with the dogs, ask questions, take pictures, and ride with the dogs around the trail.
