玩短腿柯基。在雪地遛它,看它像兔子一样蹦哒。

Go Sledding

走,滑雪橇去!

 

如果觉得滑雪路途遥远又不想这么累的话,大家也可以选择在城市的雪中寻找乐趣,做一回长不大的小孩子。当整个城市被大雪覆盖,很多地方都变成了天然的滑雪场。不需要专业的雪橇,几刀的价钱,一个浴盆一块板,再加上一只想象中的二哈,你就是这城中的王。

640-740

 

Flagstaff Hill

Boston Common

With plenty of space and its central location, the Common is a solid—though predictable—urban sledding destination.

 

Corey Hill Outlook Park

Brookline

True to its name, this spot on Summit Ave. boasts an excellent view of the city. The short and steep slopes make it a winning location for spritely teens and college students who can bail quickly. Maybe take your toddlers elsewhere.

 

Larz Anderson Park

Brookline

With hills of all sizes and inclines, Larz Anderson Park is probably one of the popular spots in the area. The only downside are the crowds, but that’s part of the fun, right?

 

Amory Park

Brookline

Smaller and milder, Amory is a nice neighborhood park for training the little ones.

 

Titus Sparrow Park

South End

Here’s another neighborhood park with gradual slopes gentle enough for the kids.

 

Sugar Bowl

Jamaica Plain

The Bowl by Jamaica Pond is one of the more unique and safer places to sled in the city. The inverted hill means you can drop in on one end and swing back on the other side, all without worrying about ending up in the street.

 

Arnold Arboretum

Jamaica Plain, Roslindale

The Arboretum is a grand winter wonderland to explore this time of year, with two hills boasting lovely views. With fewer trees standing in your way, Peters Hill at Walter and Bussey Streets is generally preferred for sledding.

 

Fallon Field

Roslindale

While everyone else is piling up on Peters Hill, head south to Fallon Field. There’s plenty of space here; let the kids have at it.

 

Highland Park (Fort Hill)

Roxbury

Burn off breakfast climbing up to the Cochituate Standpipe (Fort Hill Tower), enjoy the view of Boston, Blue Hills, and JP, and then it’s literally all downhill from there.

 

Malcolm X Park

Roxbury

Gradual slopes make for easy sledding.

 

Millennium Park

West Roxbury

Once a landfill hill, Millennium was covered with dirt from the Big Dig and opened as a park in 2000 with recreational space, a nature trail, and nice views of the city. Up to you whether to tell the kids what once lied beneath two decades ago.

 

George Wright Golf Course
Hyde Park

A public golf course blanketed with snow? George Wright is begging for sledders.

 

Thomas Park (Dorchester Heights)

Southie

The highest part of the neighborhood offers awesome views of downtown and the harbor, not to mention excellent sledding terrain.

 

Marine Park
Southie

Keep going east on Broadway to find light slopes by Pleasure Bay.

 

Dorchester Park

Dorchester

Dot Park is relatively flat with lots of trees, but there are kid-friendly spots for sledding.

 

Ringer Park
Allston

The hills are alive with the sound of…drunk college kids. Hey, it’s Allston.

 

Rogers Park

Brighton

Rogers has a small hill perfect for kids to go up and down, up and down.

 

Alexander Kemp Playground

Cambridge

Located in Cambridge Common, this spot’s for the tots.

 

Danehy Park

Cambridge

Also built on a former landfill. Now one of the highest points in Cambridge, it’s also one of the city’s top spots for sledding.

 

Fresh Pond

Cambridge

Spacious, gradual slopes.

 

President’s Lawn at Tufts

Medford

Located just north of Davis Square at Tufts, the President’s Lawn sounds like a plot of land that’s off-limits. Not so. Students and the public alike are welcome to play here, sledding included.

 

Ice skating in Boston

波士顿老炮儿们的什刹海

 

看过电影《老炮儿》的小伙伴们,一定记得六爷在什刹海的冰上驰骋的场景。对于小编来说,冬季溜冰带来更多的是娱乐性。但我相信溜冰对于很多人来说都是一个时代的回忆和挥之不去的情结。小编曾经看到过这样一段话:“这是冰上的日子,是日子就什么都有 ,含着甜酸苦辣,也引发悲欢离合,许多人生细节,像冰刀划在冰面,看着浅淡,一开春就会融化,无影无踪,可一旦冬至,它会重新凝结,在记忆里缓缓滑过,若隐若现。” 岁月终会流逝,但冰上的快乐日子却历久弥新,这种与自然天然的联系是不会随着时间而改变的。在没有雾霾、时常阳光灿烂的Boston, 我们还可以穿上冰鞋,在冰天雪地里再追逐一番快乐。

 

这些溜冰的去处,你一定不想错过。

 

Boston Common’s Frog Pond
