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).

Fisher Creek Park

There are many adventures to be had at the newly-opened Fisher Creek Park, especially for slide crazy kids. The gigantic play structure boasts six curvy slides to hurtle down, plus monkey bars, bridges, climbing challenges and more. For little adventurers, who aren’t quite ready to tackle the big slides, there are two easy slides and plenty of space at the bottom for mom or dad to catch them.
