For many years, Mary Baldwin University has allowed sledding on the hill above the lower athletics field off Coalter Street, between the Mary Baldwin Entrance Drive and Prospect Street. The college stresses that sledding is at the risk of the sledders, it is prohibited elsewhere on campus, it is not allowed anywhere after dark, and parking is prohibited on Entrance Drive.
