There is a mansion near my house, surrounded by woods. I'm not sure of the history of this mansion, but it's old. For my entire life, this mansion has been a local park to walk, sled, bike, ride horses, run, and listen to summer concerts. Recently, this has become a part of of Allegheny County, that is Pittsburgh, parks system.
Probably the most fun activity is sledding. There is a hill that is the steepest slope around. Apart from being steep, there are ridges running sideways along the hill. These are perfect to build jumps on, and of course, my friends and I built the "Jump of Death." This jump was not very big, it was just built right before a drop. Armed with an intertube, my friends and I managed to do flips, spins, and other dare devil tricks off this jump.
