A Road Through the Heart of a Great Sledding Hill

On the way from a movie at the Grandin Theatre tonight, I noted that a road has been cut through the lower half of the great snow sledding hill on Memorial Avenue at Richardson-Wayland Electrical. Avid biker Chris Berry, who knows these things, tells me it is an extension of the Roanoke Valley Greenway which comes across the Roanoke River to this spot from Vic Thomas Park. How ironic: erase one special form of recreation in favor of another.

I really hate to see this little sledding hill eliminated. I'll bet that hill has been used by kids and their sleds for as long as there has been a Roanoke.
