There is still plenty of time to put the kids in the car and head out for some fun in the snow. Beloit offers lots of spots for sledding, ice skating, cross country skiing and snow shoeing on less than a tank of gas.
Load up the sleds and head for the hills. Pack a thermos of hot chocolate and some cookies and fruit for easy snacks after you and the kids are done sledding.
Hospital Hill is located in Krueger Park on Olympian Boulevard in Beloit. It offers many trails from easy slopes to a very challenging run through the trees.
Leeson Park is along Milwaukee Road and Leeson Drive. It is a wooded area with recreational trails and the sledding here is much gentler than Hospital Hill. It’s a great place to take little ones for an afternoon of fun.
The Edwards Ice Arena offers public skating and rentals and is the home of the Beloit Youth Hockey Association, Rock County Fury Girls Hockey Team and Beloit Memorial High School Hockey Team.
Skiing and Snow Shoeing
The entrance to Big Hill Park is on Big Hill and Afton roads. The park offers groomed cross country trails and used to be the site of a ski jumping contest. The Turtle Creek Greenway Trail also offers skiing and snow shoeing.
There’s no shortage of things to do in the winter in Beloit. If you need a ride to get the family to and from the skating rink and other destinations safely, check out our inventory at Finley Buick GMC!
