Hillside Stone Slide Lands in Waterloo Park

This week, Waterloo Park welcomed the first of several playscape features! Take a look at this beautiful custom slide manufactured in Frasdorf, Germany by Richter Spielgeräte GmbH in coordination with our world-class landscape architects Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates. Each twist and turn was CNC cut from granite and carefully delivered to Austin.

The special feature will be nestled in the landscape of the Kitty King Powell Lawn, funded by, and named in memory of, Kitty King Powell who worked to ensure Austin kept its natural beauty — green, vibrant, and welcoming to all.

Located in the heart of Waterloo Park this will be a play area where families and friends will come together for adventure, socializing, and exploration. The hillside stone slide will be accompanied by a timber climbing structure, and maze of mega grass for Waterloo Park’s youngest guests to enjoy. 

The 11-acre Waterloo Park will also feature the Moody Amphitheater, over a mile and a half of trails, and a variety of garden and park spaces, set to open in spring of 2021.
