SLEDDING HILLS IN SCHAUMBURG TOWNSHIP

Every year at this time people come across this blog while looking for sledding hills in Schaumburg Township.  It’s because Pat Barch, the Hoffman Estates historian, wrote an article for the Hoffman Estates Citizen about winter activities in the village once upon a time. 

I know it’s not historical but it looks like it might be nice to fulfill an obvious need by giving a list of places to sled in Schaumburg Township.  So, here goes:

Seascape Aquatic Center
1300 Moon Lake Blvd.
Hoffman Estates

Pine Park
750 Charleston
Hoffman Estates

Freedom Park
800 S. Pinehurst Lane
Schaumburg

Meineke Park
220 E. Weathersfield Way
Schaumburg

Maybe you grew up in Schaumburg Township and had a great hill that you used?  Tell us about it and let us reminisce with you.

      I lived there when I first began working at the Schaumburg Township District Library! In 1984 it was called Fleetwing Farm. Is that the name you remember?

    The backyard of 1422 W Weathersfield Way was our sledding place. My backyard. We used to build a ramp at the top of the hill and water it down the hill so it was ice, then at the bottom where it led to another homeowner’s property, we built another ramp to jump over the bushes on the borderline. All the kids from this neighborhood would use our hill for sledding. From Kathleen Jo Rapp Sievert
