Water slide destroyed by vandals in Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A popular water slide will be absent this summer at the Wilson Pool in southwest Portland after the attraction was set on fire by vandals.
KOIN-TV reports the slide was destroyed in late April.
The model of the 22-year-old slide is no longer made, so replacement parts are not available. The slide will be replaced.
Portland Parks and Recreation spokesman Mark Ross says it will take at least six months to get a replacement slide.
Portland’s public pools will be open between June 18 and August 25.
