Mammoth Park Giant Slide Ambassadors Program
With the re-opening of the Mammoth Park Giant Slide Complex, Westmoreland County Parks launched its ‘Mammoth Park Giant Slide Ambassadors’ program to educate visitors on how to properly use the slides and to promote safety. These ambassadors are a mix of volunteers and Parks staff, and will be wearing bright orange shirts, parks logo shirts or badges. Ambassadors will be at the Giant Slide Complex periodically to help everyone have fun and answer any questions visitors may have (however, if you have an issue or emergency, please contact the Westmoreland County Park Police). The next time you’re visiting the Mammoth Park Giant Slide Complex, be sure to say ‘hello’ to our ambassadors!
On November 4, 2018, Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation celebrated the original Mammoth Park Giant Slide’s 45-year history at the “Last Slide Ride” event. This event was visitors’ last chance to ride the original Giant Slide before it closed to make way for the new slide facility. The original Giant Slide had been a part of local fun for more than two generations, and enjoyed by thousands of children and adults.
