Vancouver’s loss is turning out to be North Vancouver’s colossal gain: on Monday evening, North Vancouver City Council unanimously approved a 1,000-foot-long (330-metre) water slip-and-slide summertime event in Lower Lonsdale.

The day-long event is scheduled for Saturday, August 22 and will be organized by Slide The City, a Utah-based organization known for bringing iconic touring slip-and-slide attractions to cities across North America. The slide will stretch  four-city-blocks  beginning at Keith Road and ending at 3rd Street with a long splash pool . From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., participants will slip-and-slide along the entire course with the assistance of gravity and a running stream of water fed by fire hydrants.
