Children are no longer able to go down a slide at a Saskatoon park after a complaint about the slide’s temperature.
The City of Saskatoon said someone made a complaint last week that a stainless steel slide was “too hot”.
Since then, the city has boarded up the slide at W.W. Ashley Park with a sign reading, “Our slide is closed so we can make improvements.”
The city said staff decided to close the slide until the weather cools down.
A different slide, that isn’t made of stainless steel, has been ordered to replace the slide.
W.W. Ashley Park’s two other slides remain open.
