One of New York's City's most popular sledding locations received a major safety upgrade just in time for last week's big storm.

The chainlink fence near the base of the hill in Sunset Park at 44th Street and Fifth Avenues is now lined with protective pads to make sure each ride has a safe, cushioned ending.

In the past, hay bales were used as a safety measure to prevent a rider from colliding with the fence at high speeds, but this year the bright orange pads offer an even better option.

“The new pads at Sunset Park offer a sustainable, safe way to have fun at one of the best sledding hills in Brooklyn,” said Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Martin Maher. “This park is a beloved destination when it snows, and we decided to try something new this year.”
