So my family and I dropped into this place to use some snow toys we had, more than anything since it was free public space. There was a small crowd enjoying the hill, signs posted for wolves, plenty of sunshine. Will check this place out again on our next visit to Breck!

This is a very nice hike, up the stairs. When you get to the top of the stairs you can see the peaks at Breckenridge resort. You can keep going, but be careful for the bicyclist. The paths from the top of the stairs appeared to be shared with them. It is a short 15-20 minute hike up to the... More

If you need a day off from skiing but still want to enjoy the snow, this is it. It is a fantastic sledding hill and it's free! It also adjoins to a dog park if you need some "social" time or exercise for your dog. It's located just two blocks from Main Street.

The teenagers love outdoor sports and being from Texas, this was a must do. We stopped at Duggars to pick up our picnic lunch and headed over to Carter Park. It had a wonderful covered picnic area, clean public bathrooms, and a ton of areas for different sports. The teens enjoyed the soccer park and enjoyed watching all the dogs... More

We've seen people with their kids sledding on Four O'Clock run on the ski slopes...so dangerous! Take your kids to Carter Park. It's wonderful, old school, healthy, sledding fun. Even if you are here on vacation, stop by City Market, buy a saucer and have a blast!

Nice slope for sledding. We brought our own sleds and I'm glad we did. You have to walk up the slope, but it's a fun, free hill, so who cares? Great for families with younger (under 13) children.

My 13 year old really enjoyed this place. He wanted to go sledding and the hotel we stayed at recommended Carter Park. There's no charge. You just need a sled. There's an overhang/porch-like area for parents to stand under. When we were there it wasn't too crowded. There were small kids on up to teenagers. Everyone seemed to be watchful... More

This is a family friend place for sledging. I was here with my 10 and 12 year olds and they enjoyed it. We went here 3 days in a row. The best part is it is free, just get your own sledges. Walmart in near by Frisco, CO sells it for about $15. Totally worth it.

Carter park is open year round but the main attraction is as a sledding hill in the winter. The park is a couple of blocks from Main Street on the south part of town. Now you can walk there because parking is limited. If you have small kids drive you will find some street parking. There is no magic carpet... More

The only place to sled in Breck. Stop at local City Market and purchase a $16 sled or $10 saucer and go to Carter Park and feel the exhilaration of going down the hill. Fun for the whole family. Our girls loved it (Ages 3 and 5). There is also a dog park onsite that was pretty busy with locals.
