It’s going to be an epic summer on the Shore! North Vancouver City Council unanimously approved the revival of Car Free Day on Lonsdale Avenue, highlighted this year with a 1,000-foot-long water slip and slide to run down the city’s main thoroughfare.
The event is organized by Slide The City, the Utah-based events organization credited with bringing touring slip-and-slide attractions to hundreds of cities across North America and around the world.
Covering four city blocks on Lower Lonsdale, Slide the City – North Vancouver, will take place on:
- Saturday, August 22nd, 2015
- From 11am – 6pm
- Beginning at Keith Road
- Ending at 3rd Street with a splash pool to stop
Mayor Darrell Mussatto characterized the plan as a “21st century soap box derby.”
“I think this is an exciting, family-friendly event that will bring all ages, not only from our community and the North Shore but also the broader region,” said North Vancouver City Councilor Linda Buchanan. “This is the opportunity for us to have an event that puts the City of North Vancouver on the map as being someplace that is fun and to come to hangout.”
The burgeoning track record of fun city initiatives (think proposed amphitheater and outdoor skating rink at the Lonsdale waterfront) is one reason among many to consider North Vancouver as a great place to call home.
