My boys - 11 and 14 - loved them! Easy parking; great 15-minute detour near the Castro and Twin Peaks.

Seward Slides

These cement slides were awesome! They are located in Seward Mini Park. If you want some extra speed, spray nonstick cooking spray on the bottom of the cardboard. Be careful! You will catch some air and don't use your arms as brakes!

This should be at least a 3. My wife and I had so much fun, and fun watching the other kids do it. It does go fast, so be careful, but it's worth it.

Seward Mini Park's Cement Slides

I forgot to bring cardboard, but several pieces had been left at the bottom of the slide. After using a couple of pieces, my daughter experimented by riding down on her jacket. When she also leaned back a little, she shot off that slide like a bullet out of a gun.

These slides were one of the huge highlights of our road trip.

Seward Mini Park's Cement Slides

Seward Mini Park's main and only thing is two 30 foot cement slides. It is a small park nestled between two homes above the Castro District. Kids of all ages love it, but make sure to bring a piece of cardboard -- it will make your ride a little faster. You will find the park on Seward St. between 19th and Douglas St.

The sign at the entrance of the park states: "No adults unless accompanied by children"...
