Free Sled Library opens at Iverson
By Taylor Hale
STEVENS POINT – Stevens Point now has a free sled share program, allowing those without a sled the chance to borrow a saucer or sled and hit the icy slides of the Iverson Park Winter Sports area.
“The sled share will give out-of-town visitors another option when they come to the area with younger children. They might be here for another event and if they can borrow sleds, they can enjoy some of the other great things Stevens Point has to offer,” said Wiza. “Even area residents who may not have sleds can take out a loaner while they’re at Iverson.”
The initial sleds for the program were donated to the city by an anonymous donor. The sign was made by the streets department and parks staff constructing the housing coral that holds the sleds. The installation costs the city nothing, according to Wiza.
“We’re going to rely on the integrity of people to not take the sleds home and keep them there for everyone to enjoy,” continued Wiza. “And, if people have sleds they’re not using anymore, they can drop them off at Iverson Park’s sled bin and add them to the supply.”
The Sled Library is now open and fully available to the public.
