BROOKLYN

  • Fort Greene Park (a steep, less crowded area can be found at "the back part of the hill that leads down to Myrtle Ave—you will find less crowds, and a much steeper ride. You might even find some snowboarders there.")
  • The Nethermead—Picnic House area in Prospect Park (warning: gets crowded!)
  • The Long Meadow Slope—Tennis House Area in Prospect Park
  • Vanderbilt Playground (right off of Prospect Park Southwest)
  • Maryland Monument ("enter at Prospect Park Southwest and 16th Street and proceed across to Wellhouse Drive. The slope is by the bridge and is pretty steep.")
  • Sunset Park (enter at 41st/44th Street and 5th Avenue)—not crowded, not steep!
  • Owl’s Head Park in Bay Ridge (at Shore Parkway, Shore Road, Colonial Road and 68 Street)
  • Shore Road and 97th ("a big hill!)
  • Brooklyn Heights: the dog park by Harry Chapin Playground has a hill
  • Clumber Corner in DUMBO near the BQE and Washington Street (check it out here)
