Take a Look at Slide Hill

Construction on The Hills project is continuing at a rapid pace. In January we showcased Grassy Hill’s rise to the top, but today we present to you Slide Hill!

Already built to an impressive height of 23 ft, Slide Hill will eventually reach 38 feet above the Liberty Promenade. With four slides of various heights along its slope, Slide Hill will be a center for activity and play. The longest slide, for the thrill seeking visitor, will be 48 feet long! There will also be wider and shorter slides for families and young children.

Slide Hill will offer an exciting complement to the tranquility of the adjacent Grassy Hill and Discovery Hill.

For now though, the bulldozers are hard at work
