Another great spot in Summit County is Goodyear Heights Metro Park. There is two sledding hills located inside of the park. Goodyear Heights is located at 2077 Newton Street in Akron.

If you don't mind spending some money, tubing at Brandywinemay be for you. The tubing hill is open from Thursdays to Sundays and costs at least $25. The Polar Blast is located at 1146 West Highland Road in Sagamore Hills.

In Lorain County, the biggest sledding hill has to be at the Vermilion River Reservation. The Metro Parks even has a semi enclosed shelter nearby to warm up in. The Vermilion River Reservation is located at 51211 North Ridge Road.
