Sledding in the winter is something everyone enjoys at just about any age and City of Duluth Parks and Recreation division staff have made it easier to get out and have fun this winter.

Duluth residents and visitors can now take advantage of Sled Sheds that have been installed at three area parks.  The new Sled Sheds are available now at Leif Erickson Park, Lincoln Park and Portland Square.

The rules of using the Sled Sheds at each park are easy:

  1. While visiting a park, grab a sled and have fun sledding the hills with your family and friends.
  2. When you are done sledding, please return your sled to the shed so that other park visitors can enjoy sledding.

The City would also welcome additional sleds for these locations. If you have sleds laying around the garage that aren't getting used anymore, why not put them to good use?  All you have to do to donate sleds is bring them to Leif Erickson Park, Lincoln Park or Portland Square and drop them into the Sled Shed.  They'll then be available for all to enjoy.

The Sled Shed is another pop-up play program created as part of an effort to continue to engage with the public during COVID-19. The Sled Sheds are expected to remain at the three locations until the end of the winter season.

The City would also like residents to know that they are open to creating additional Sled Sheds in the area. If you have a location you think would be perfect, please send an email to
