ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – If you missed your chance to slide down a giant water slide in the middle of downtown St. Louis, don’t worry, you’ll get another one.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the slide will return. This time it will be closer to Forest Park. You’ll be able to slide on July 9 on Oakland Avenue near Hampton Avenue south of Forest Park.
