Jesse Decker Park Sledding Hill in Orion Twp review, info, pics and sled video. Jesse Decker Park in Orion Township, Michigan is located on North Squirrel Rd and features a large sledding hill, ball fields and a playscape.
There aren’t a lot of amenities to Jesse Decker Park from a sledding standpoint. No warming areas, the parking is pretty far away from the hill to lug a sled and parking area could use some snow removal. There isn’t a snow fence (or wasn’t when I went), and there isn’t a designated place for sledders to walk up and down the hill. The hill is plenty wide enough to spread out on so there isn’t a ton of traffic even when there is a lot of sledders. The sled hill is wide to allow for multiple sledders and the speed factor is a hit for sledders over 10 years old. The banks to the side of the large hill are better if you have children smaller children and I saw several parents using the short sides for the younger ones.
The sledding hill at Jesse Decker Park in Orion Township, Michigan is fairly steep and greasy fast in proper conditions. There is also a fairly large dip at the bottom of the steep hill (see video). The dip at the bottom of the hill where the hill meets the baseball field outfield will allow sledders to get “plenty of air” and I witnessed quite a few fun wipeouts on this hill.
