Seward Street Slides Tours and Activities

Seward Street Slides
Tucked away from the main areas of the city, San Francisco's Seward Street Slides are a bit of hidden gem. Built in the 1960s by a local teenager for neighborhood kids, the two parallel slides are formed in concrete running down one of San Francisco's famous hills. The community garden and mini-park was up for redevelopment when locals protested the change. A 14-year-old girl designed the slides in a competition, and the space was officially converted into a park in 1973.

Some bring their own cardboard for the ride, but others find discarded pieces next to the slides that make the journey down a bit smoother. From the top of the slides, be sure to pause and enjoy the views of the city and the bay. A sign reads "no adults unless accompanied by children" to mark the park’s original intent.

Practical Info

The Seward Street Slides are located in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood at Seward and Douglas streets. It is recommended that full length pants be worn to protect the legs while sliding on the concrete. The park is open daily from 9am to 5pm.
