Kids and families spend an afternoon of fun on the hill behind Westlake Recreation Center.
The snow between Christmas and New Year's created some awesome sledding conditions for the big hill at Recreation Center Park. A few dozen children, teens and parents were there on Wednesday afternoon. All the sledding already done has packed the snow down nicely, making the ride down fast and fun. How have you been enjoying the winter break? Sledding? Making snowmen or snow angels? Share your photos! Click the "Upload photos and video button" to get started.
