SIOUX CITY (SUBMITTED) - The Sioux City Police Department and Parks and Recreation Department remind residents, there are designated areas for sledding in City parks.

The designated locations are Sertoma Park, 4225 Lancelot Lane and Grandview Park, 24th & Grandview.

Signage is posted at these two locations to indicate the approved areas within the parks.

All are encouraged to recreate in a safe manner.

Snow depth will make conditions variable throughout the winter.

The following tips will help those sledding to enjoy the winter activity and prevent injuries:

Adults should always supervise children while they are sledding. Make sure the hill is safe: that means a hill without obstacles in the sledding path, which doesn’t end near a street, parking lot, pond, or other danger.

Take time to avoid collisions.

Children under age 12 should wear a fitted helmet while sledding.

Never go down a hill headfirst; sit facing forward and steer. Use a sled that can steer—it’s safer than flat sheets, toboggans or snow discs.

If you want to go sledding in the evening, make sure the area is well lit.

Wear warm and layered clothing to protect from injuries and the cold.

For more information about sledding and other recreational programs contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 279-6886.
