Would it be such a crime? Is it too much too ask?
Dear Santa/Boris/pop-up entrepreneurs/plastic sheeting manufacturers of London, all we ask for is:
1 (ONE) SLIP ‘N’ SLIDE, ON A HILL IN LONDON, FOR PUBLIC USE.
Look at this great one in San Francisco! Doesn’t just looking at it feel refreshing?
Yet also exhilarating?
Yes, yes it does. And look, we’re not being funny, but they even created one in Bristol MONTHS AGO, and when they’re getting ahead of the water slide game, Londoners have a right to be concerned.
Locations we would accept include Greenwich Park:

Any reasonable slope would do, really.
While we wait for our wishes to magically materialise, think cool thoughts and enjoy the full video of the San Fran slide of joy:
