Hot enough for you? If you’re looking for some unique places to cool down in Vancouver this summer, why not try sliding down a giant 1,000-foot long slip n’ slide!?

If you didn’t get your fill of slipping and sliding last summer, you’re in luck. It looks like North Vancouver is bringing back Slide the City – with its 1,000-foot-long water slide – for another run in 2016.
