Talk about a slick idea. 

Residents can now enjoy the new Lending Sled Library at the Canton Township Summit on the Park. Residents can borrow a sled to slide down a small hill near the Summit and then return the sled when they are done enjoying the snow.

The 'Need a Sled - Use a Sled - Have Fun' feature is located at the east side of the Summit on the Park, located at 46000 Summit Parkway. A small sledding hill is adjacent that offers a quick little ride next to the stand.  

“We're excited to offer free access to these snow sleds, where anyone can walk by and use a sled to enjoy a few minutes playing in the snow,” said Canton Recreation Specialist Laura Mortier. “It's great to see little ones enjoying the sledding on the Summit's small snow-covered hill, while they learn the value of sharing when they have to return it and leave with just the memory of some great outdoor winter fun.” 


A sign at the sled stand points out that sledding hills are completely unsupervised, uninspected, and ungroomed, so those who use the sledding hills are doing so at their own risk.

 In addition, children must be supervised at all times and all sledders must watch out for the safety of others, officials said.
