Some kids are just thrill seekers and daredevils. If you want to know where they can climb things in Indy, we have a few ideas, but one local mom was very specific about what kind of thrill her kiddo wanted. “Where are all of the old school, straight down metal slides?!?”
Yes, I mean the burn-your-booty-in-the-hot-sun and freeze-your-booty-in-the-cold-morning kind.
Luckily our readers knew exactly where she should go!
Tara: Fortville park. There is a metal curly one right by the tball diamonds and soccer fields. Then if you go father back there is a whole playground of old school equipment.
Emily: Dillon Park has a metal spiral one and so does Forest Park. Forest Park may have a metal one that goes straight down too but I don’t remember for sure.
Laura: Westside park in Greenwood. She should also check out Freedom park. It has a very tall play structure with slides. My 7 year old still loves it!
Ashley: There is one at the southport park on the southside. Also a metal curly slide.
