Slide the City is bringing a 1,000-foot slip-and-slide to Toronto this summer. 

Last year, a massive water slide was set up in Downsview Park. 

"Usain Bolt will be green with envy once he sees how fast you can cover that much ground," the event website reads. "You can strut through town with your hot bod, cool dance moves and slick slides."
