The new pig-shaped play piece, scheduled to officially open to the public on Monday at the N.C. Museum of Art, inspires this post.
The piece, best for preschoolers and under, features a small slide. Kids can step up into the body of the pig and then slide on down.
So, let's start with the pig, who will be nicknamed next month, and move on to four other slides that are among my favorites in the Triangle. Share yours!
N.C. Museum of Art, Raleigh: The pig-shaped play piece is created by Spanish artist Jaime Hayon. Right now, it's called SCULPT. C, but the art museum is looking for a nickname, seeking suggestions through social media. During an event on April 21, there will be a live voting booth to select the winning nickname.
Knightdale Station Park, Knightdale: Climb up a two-story silo and slide down a big yellow tube slide.
Duke Park, Durham. If you're looking for a really tall, fast tube slide, Duke Park is the place to go. Check out that blue one in the background!
