Reader Poll: Best Sledding Spots in the Community
Looking for some local sledding spots? Try these and contribute your own.
With cold weather and snow hitting the area this week, many Potomac residents may be looking to hit the hills and test their sledding skills.
Potomac is home to many good sledding hills. Here are some of the hills around the community ideal for sledding — at your own risk, that is.
- Cold Spring Elementary School – The hills by the school’s parking lot are perfect for sledders. The hills are an important part of the community — so much so that local parents fought for the hills to remain intact with a redesign of the school’s landscaping.
- Washington Hebrew Congregation – Long, sloping hills make the Julia Bindeman Suburban Center’s campus a nice sledding spot.
- Norwood School – The private school located at 8821 River Road has some decent sledding hills. An added bonus is that it is about two miles away from Potomac Village, so you can swing by Safeway or Giant to get a hat and gloves, visit Strosniders Hardware to pick up an extra sled and finish at Starbucks with a nice, warm cup of hot chocolate.
- Avenel Community – Some hills in the Avenel Community are great for sledding; however, sledding on the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm golf course is prohibited, so make sure to steer clear of the course.
