Take a Ride on the Secret Slides

San Francisco Seward Street Slides

Added by The Outbound Collective

  • Dual concrete slides hidden in an SF neighborhood
  • Good clean fun and a unique date idea
  • Open daily from 9am – 5pm

Tucked away in a small neighborhood park in Eureka Valley is a set of really fun, slippery, and surprisingly steep concrete slides. They were originally designed by a 14 year old kid over 30 years ago, and we all owe him a big hat tip. People use a variety of sliding materials (saucers, food trays, etc), but good ol’ cardboard is your best bet. You can usually find some lying around at the base of the slides, but I’d recommend that you bring your own (and pack it out).

The slides are surrounded by a small park, native California plants, and super-vigilant neighbors who have no problems reporting post-5pm shenanigans…so please be courteous.

How to Get There

No One Is Too Cool For Slides

While not a knife edge hike or a scenic spot to watch the sunset the slides are as good as it gets for hidden gems of the city. Pack a lunch, definitely bring your own cardboard if you're in the mood to feel like a kid again. Makes an excellent destination for a weekend bike ride in the city.

Closed On Mondays

Would have been great to know that the slides are locked down on Mondays! Look like fun if not locked up!

Thought the slides would be underwhelming but was completely wrong! You can fly down these on the cardboard pieces. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds of children and no matter how much the locals egg you on, do not go down head first.

If it has rained recently, bring your own cardboard to sit on. Beware of elbow raspberries. A brunch at zazie and these slides equal a magical sf day!

Fun! There’s a sign that reads, "No adults unless accompanied by children." :)
