Grab the sleds! Popular Holmdel Park sledding hill back open
A number of kids in Monmouth County were disappointed Thursday when one of the area’s biggest and most popular sledding hills was closed, but the sled hill at Holmdel Park will open today at noon.
The morning crews spent some extra time clearing snow and ice in the parking lots and salting and sanding the walkways leading up the large hill.
In efforts to comply with executive order decisions, the hill remained closed Thursday after the region's first significant snowfall in two years. But the freeholders wanted kids to be outside and enjoy the snow.
Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone tells News 12, “When this was brought to the attention of the Monmouth County Board Freeholders, we reversed the decision and are happy to report that the sledding hill will be open today at noon."
Face coverings are required, and social distance if you can.
