Concrete Slides

I married into THE BEST family ever. Some people can't stand their in-laws, but I love mine. We try to visit family as often as we can, and we often visit Q's sisters in the Roseville, CA area. Some day I am going to grow up and be as amazing as my sisters in law. Seriously, they are the best. When we visit they often give us great ideas of what to do in their neck of the woods. 

Concrete Slide at Lincoln Estates Park in Roseville, CA. I love this blog about kid friendly things to do in Northern California. www.wayupnorthincali.blogspot.com

Last summer, Taunie took us to the concrete slides at Lincoln Estates Park in Roseville. She is always finding the best places to take our kids. We had never experienced concrete slides before, and the kids were sold! They had a great time. We took turns racing down the side-by-side slides. 

The Stats: Lincoln Estates Park
Location: 331 James Drive, Roseville, CA
What's there: 2 Concrete Slides, Basketball Court, Baseball Diamond, 
Playground, Large Grassy Area with Mature Trees, Picnic Tables



Lincoln Estates Park is in a nice, quiet, older neighborhood in Roseville. It had large grassy areas with mature trees. It also had a playground and picnic tables. A very nice place to spend a warm summer afternoon.

Pro Tips:
  • Bring cardboard and wax paper. Put the wax paper under the cardboard and then sit on the cardboard to slide down. It will make the ride smoother and a little faster.
  • Keep your knees and ankles up and elbows tucked in! One of the kids made the mistake of dragging an ankle and it gave it quite a nice burn.
  • Be respectful of the park, and don't leave your cardboard and wax paper (or any other trash) behind. My one criticism is that there was some trash at the bottom of the slides. Do your part and keep the park clean!
  • Bring a lunch, some lawn chairs and a basketball. It's a great place to let the whole family have a screen free afternoon.
