From a press release:

McDade Park is once again offering some exciting winter fun – sledding.

Thanks to the recent snowfalls, the hill is ready and families are making their way to the park (1 Bald Mountain Rd., Scranton) for this old-fashioned winter activity.

According to the Lackawanna County Commissioners Corey D. O’Brien, Jim Wansacz, and Patrick M. O’Malley, sledding is being offered once again free-of-charge.

The sled hill area is located near the 911 Memorial across from the park’s second pavilion. It will be open seven days a week from dawn until dusk with plenty of free parking.

Safety measures have been taken with large bales of hay located at the bottom of the hill to cushion any contact. Safety rules have been posted for everyone to adhere to in an attempt to make it an enjoyable experience.

Individuals are encouraged to contact the park’s office at 570-963-6764 to check on the conditions after a snowfall.
