Winter fun at Warren Park skating rink, sledding hill in West Ridge

We had one shot last weekend at some winter fun before the deep freeze and we took it.  For "North Siders" Warren Park offers the closest option for ski resort life.  The easily accessible ice rink and sledding hill (there's a parking lot!!) will make sure your city kids get outside for proper winter sports.

Here is a list and hours of Chicago Park District Ice Rinks

A "warming house" with bathrooms and $6.00 skate rentals sits in the background.
The sledding hill is more than adequate for elementary school and teens to get a thrill. Great for snowboard practice. The photo doesn't show it well but the incline is good and stairs make it easier to get up the hill.

Last time outside for a week!
 West Ridge single family home sales

About 153 homes sold in West Ridge over the last three months with a median price of about $318,000.  The median price can get you a totally rehabbed raised ranch three bedroom house near Warren Park, Indian Boundary Park AND Rogers School Park.  Like parks?  Get a move-in ready house well under $400,000 and enjoy the outdoors.
