There’s A Giant Water Slide In The Middle Of Bristol Right Now

The best use of a civic highway since probably ever.

1. Well this is pretty cool.

2. The Park and Slide project is the work of artist Luke Jerram.

3. It’s part of Making Sundays Special and the Bristol Art Weekender.

4. 96,573 people signed up for their chance to get a ‘ticket to slide’, through a ballot.

5. Some 360 people will get to fly down the street today.

6. Jerram says he never imagined such a positive response after he pitched the idea.

And he turned down funding from large corporate sponsors, instead gathering local support for his work. The slide was funded through Spacehive.com, the world’s first civic crowd funding site.
