Despite a petition to stop it amid the drought, Downtown’s watery slip-and-slide goes on. Event organizer Slide the City, however, has moved the attraction’s location and date.
The 1,000-foot-long slip-and-slide, which will be set up on Sept. 28, has been shifted from the center of Downtown to a stretch of Temple Street between Main and Los Angeles streets.
Meanwhile, Slide the City is in talks with the city about a proposal to collect, treat and donate the 15,000-20,000 gallons of water used in the event, potentially to irrigate Griffith Park.
The city is reviewing whether the logistics of that proposal are feasible, said Rick Coca, a spokesman for 14th District City Councilman José Huizar.
Tickets to the attraction are online at slidethecity.com and range from $15 for a single slide to $50 for all-day VIP access.
