Cardboard Hill in Belgatos Park: Remember to Clean Up After You Play!

“Cardboard Hill” is a much beloved spot in Belgatos Park, but sometimes it looks more like “big trash hill” when the cardboard sledders neglect to clean up after themselves.  Pack it in, pack it out! This is true for all the wonderful parks and trails in Los Gatos.

Here are a few shots from a couple days ago – typical fun on a sunny September afternoon.

And after multiple runs up and down the hill, they still don't look tired!

Have fun, but please clean up after your cardboard sledding day.  Remember that you share the park with the rest of the community, the deer, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, and other wildlife.  Leaving the broken down cardboard boxes is an eyesore and may well harm the wildlife indigenous to the area, too.

Here’s what I saw a day or two later (though since then, it has been cleaned up – THANK YOU!).

You can see the trash even from a distance.

Cardboard closer up

As you enter the park, it’s pretty plain that the hill has been “trashed” with cardboard. Not nice.

Luckily, and happily, today it was pristine and beautiful.  Love to have it stay that way!  Thank you for cleaning up after the playtime on the hill!!
