Snow Day

January 7, 2010

Today I took a stroll up to Forest Park to witness my first ever day of Sledding on Art Hill.

Art Hill today

I didn’t have a sled but it looked like lots of fun.


  1. It is. I remember as a kid (70’s) using the family Flexible Flyer. Unless you didn’t want your kidneys pounded into a paste though, you didn’t go down the center, under St. Louis. The remains of the foundations for the Cascades (World’s Fair) were still extant, buried under the soil. They only looked lumpy to the naked eye, but you were in for a surprise when you got up to full speed. B-bam, bam, bam, bam, b-bam, bam-bam, b-bam. Oh, and if you weren’t careful, you’d take a dip in the Grand Basin. Unless it was frozen. WHAM! I didn’t notice, are there still pits for bonfires? Ah, good times. I believe the Cascade remains were removed under the restoration scheme.

    • Wow! Great story. I would have loved to take part in the Forest Park Archaeology of digging up World’s Fair remains. Concerning the bonfires, I think I smelled fire yesterday but didn’t see any. Anyway, thanks for sharing your story. I really appreciate it.
