11 Parks with Fantastic Slides

Trending Now


As we wave goodbye to summer and welcome fall, now is a good time to squeeze in a few more playground outings before the weather turns cold and wet. And what better way to slide into autumn, than by actually sliding. We’ve rounded up a handful of playgrounds with kid-approved, fun-filled slides. Just remember… when you take the tykes to these playgrounds, it’s more up and down and up and down (and well, you know the drill).

Carkeek Park

First up … try sliding down a salmon. That’s right! The slide at Carkeek Park’s playground is shaped like a salmon. What little fry wouldn’t love jumping into the gaping fish mouth only to come out at the other end? No salmon ladder here, it’s an easy climb up the steps to the mouth of the slide… and then a quick zip down.

Park Extra: When you’re finished sliding, take your crew to the beach and wander along the shoreline. Or plan your trip on a weekend when trained Salmon Stewards will be on hand to answer questions and help you spot spawning salmon.
