Hit the Slopes! The Best Sledding Spots in Bucks County

Sledding! Let’s go sledding! Grab your saucer disc, tube or toboggan and hit these Bucks County hills.

“Sledding! Let’s go sledding! 
Down this snowy hill let’s slip and slide 
Come along with me on this wild ride”

Bolton Mansion

85 Holly Drive, Levittown

Families have been sledding down the hills at this historic mansion’s estate for generations and will continue for years to come! “One of the best spots for sledding! Had a great time! Brought back so many memories,” says Susie T.

Bucks County Community College

275 Swamp Rd, Newtown

On snowy days you can trade in hitting the books for hitting the slopes. Jessica H. can’t recall the exact location, “but there’s a great hill on the Bucks County Community College campus.”

Central Park

425 Wells Road, Doylestown

Overlooking Kids Castle, another family favorite in warmer climate, are some pretty decent hills at Central Park. “My kids just went to Central Park today and had a blast,” Heather W. shared just after a Central Bucks School District-wide snow day.

Fonthill Castle

525 E Court St, Doylestown

Nestled right in the heart of Doylestown Borough’s Historic District, Fonthill Castle is a sledding hotspot among the Bucks County Parent Community. Considering its central location in the borough and ample parking, the hill is a popular place to be after any snowfall!

Helen Randle Park

236 Swamp Road, Newtown

Directly across from the entrance of Bucks County Community College, Helen Randle Park attracts local sledders looking to get some serious air.

Magill’s Hill Park

River Road and Chapel Road, New Hope

Stephen F. says it’s always worth one last sledding trip to Magill’s before the season’s over. Come to Magill’s Hill Park and you’ll find, in addition to 5-acres of steeply sloped and wide hills, a beautiful view of the Delaware River. Look for a few parking spots across the street at Canal Path Park.

Mercer Museum

84 S. Pine Street, Doylestown

Plenty of room right and a great hill to sled with Mercer Museum as a picturesque towering backdrop? This could possibly be the most romantic place to sled, if you’re looking for a fun date day activity!

Nockamixon State Park

1542 Mountain View Drive, Quakertown

The area above the Marina is an ideal spot to bring your tobaggan. Enter the park through Harrisburg School Road and park in lot #13. Nockamixon makes for a great day trip too, as there are plenty of other winter activities you can engage in, such as ice skating if the lake is frozen over (be sure to bring an ice auger)!

Peace Valley Park

264 Creek Road, Doylestown

Jennifer K., who’s boys are now teens, recommends the hills at Peace Valley Park and Pennridge High School (below). One of the park’s greatest hills (which also offers spectacular views of the park), can be found on the northwest side of Lake Nockamixon. Look for parking by Pavilion Five, which you can get to from New Galena Road.

Pennridge High School

1228 N. 5th Street, Perkasie

Sleeping in late, drinking hot chocolate, and sledding down Championship Hill are all activities common for a snow day at Pennridge.

Tyler State Park

101 Swamp Road, Newtown

Once the roads clear and you’ve defrosted your car, drive over to the Upper Plantation Picnic Area at Tyler State Park for a good old fashioned ride down the hill. A parking lot and bathrooms are nearby, so it’s an ideal location for young children who may frequently need a break. Looking for a little more adventurous slopes off the beaten path? The hills to the west of Schofield Ford Covered Bridge are a great spot as well.
