NEW YORK (PIX11) — While most sledders head for the hills in Central Park, there are several other city spots worth checking out once the weather cooperates.

Central Park’s Cedar Hill and Pilgrim Hill are the go-to for sledding, but other crowded slopes are in Fort Tryon Park and Prospect Park.

But before you hit the hills, beware that sledding on golf courses in city parks is prohibited. Sledding damages the grass on the golf courses and is expensive to repair, according to a Parks Department source.

Here are some other parks where you can have some fun in the snow, according to the agency:
