City of Sault Ste Marie and Local Partners Create ‘Sled Library’ for Winter Fun

The City of Sault Ste Marie, the Chippewa County Sheriff’s department, and the Outhouse Consortium all have created a way to get the kids outside – and enjoy the snow.Sled Hll

With all that powder on the ground, along with the warmer temperatures, it’s a great time to enjoy mother nature.  Take the kid’s sledding for free!

In two places, they built a sled library where you can borrow sleds for free, use them, and when you are done, put them back so others can have fun.

There is one at Brady Park on Water Street, and one at the “free sledding hill”  Sault Seal Recreation Hill.

“So far it has been for a week and we have seen a lot of activity so we are hoping the public will keep it going”. Said Trisha Kiczinski with the City of Sault Ste Marie. “Also, if anybody wants to donate a sled, they can drop it off at one of the locations”.

“I think it’s important because then everybody has a chance to sled,” Resident, Sam Luker explained. “During these tough times with COVID, everything is financially hard with everybody, so it is nice to have the free stuff so that everybody can come out and sled with their kids and get them out every once in a while”.
