Winter Fun

When the snow falls, kids love to go sledding. You can do so at Twin Sisters Park, Aldeen Park, and Sand Park. Sledding at Aldeen Park is only allowed on the north side of the dam.

Note: The Rockford Park District has the authority to close any sledding hill depending on conditions.

Sledding Safety

Sled at your own risk! The Rockford Park District reminds people that they are responsible for safety while sledding on Rockford Park District grounds. Parents are encouraged to make sure supervision is provided before letting children play on the hills.
