Cortland sled hill ready for winter fun

The sled hill is open from dawn to dusk.

The ribbon was cut on the sled hill in Cortland, Ohio.

CORTLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – After several attempts to get the sled hill in Cortland up and running over the past few years, the ribbon was finally cut on the hill Wednesday.

Members of the Cortland Parks and Recreation board, along with officials from Trumbull County MetroParks and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, gathered at the park off of Mecca Street to officially open the new sledding hill.

Preparations for the hill have been ongoing and the project got a boost this year with the construction of the new stadium at Lakeview High School. The dirt that was taken from that construction project was brought to the sledding hill with the help of Miller-Yount Paving, who donated services to haul the dirt over to the hill and grade it.

The project was a collaborative effort between the  City of Cortland, Trumbull County and the State of Ohio. Cortland Mayor Jim Woofter credited former Mayor Curt Moll for his vision for project and the collaborative effort of city council, the parks board and the state and county for working together to get the project done.

The park is open from dawn to dusk.
