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).

Powell Barnett Park

This steep slide might raise some eyebrows but adventure loving kiddos will have a blast finding ways to climb to the top and then catch the fast ride down. And for those little ones who are somewhat more cautious, the park boasts other fun and unique playground experiences that will keep your tots entertained for hours.
