    If these are the same slides I am thinking of you may need to bring a piece of cardboard and you go incredibly fast. They are so much fun!

    Michelle,

    Are you a skeptic about how fast they go or are you a skeptic about how much your life is going to change now that you know about these?

    I think these are in Golden Gate Park in the childrens playground? I took my kids last year and saw some just like this. And yes, you need cardboard to go fast – there are usually scraps around the base of the slide

    they’re near the children’s playground; if you enter the park from the Haight at Stanyan and keep going straight, you run into them.

    These slides aren’t in Golden Gate Park. They are near the Castro at Douglass/Seward Streets (near 17th). Just south of Market, climb up the hill on Douglass St. until you get to Seward. Make that right and soon you’ll see a park on the left-hand side. This is where you’ll find the concrete slides going down the hillside at least a couple storeys. Since sliding down concrete on your rear end isn’t such a hot idea, people have left slats of cardboard for anyone to use. It’s a fast ride, so if you go check it out, make sure not to get a concrete friction burn.

    There’s another great, long, fast slide over in Berkeley, at Cordoneses (sp?) Park, across from the Rose Garden. Waxed paper is even better than cardboard :-)

    I’ve been on the Berkeley one with my nephew, cardboard (or jeans) is a good idea. It is something like Coternieces Park.

    Sometimes I get sad when my little SF secrets get posted in Blogland… but these are fantastic slides. Been going here since I was a kid. Waaaay better than the ones in GG Park.

    I used to sleep in a home right near these slides, and I have many unhappy memories of being woken up after last call by drunken sliders. It sounded like they were having lots of fun; no hard feelings!

    There is one like this in the Presidio, too. In that playground near the pond.

    i grew up right around there, and the Secret Slides was one of my favorite spots. i always like to walk by when i’m home visiting family.

    Jordan: I’m a skeptic that these exist. Secret slide in SF? Hmm.

    Please prove me wrong.
