Park and Slide is a project dreamt up by Bristol based artist Luke Jerram. Enabling the people of BristolUnited Kingdom, to navigate the streets of their city in a new way, this temporary 90m water slide is a simple architectural intervention and a playful response to the urban landscape.

The slide will be on Park Street, a well-known main street which links Clifton with central Bristol. It’s steep incline and prominent location makes it perfect for the slide site. Park and Slide will be presented as part of Bristol City Council’s ‘Make Sundays Special’ programme, enabling people to see their city in a new light. For the event, Park Street will be closed to traffic and dominated by people not cars. The slide will be free for the public to use.

Like many of Jerram’s large-scale art projects, Park and Slide requires public participation to be activated and invites anyone to come and have a go. The person on the slide becomes the performer, while spectators either side watch on.
