Mac Miller’s “Blue Slide Park” Now Appears on Google Maps

Written by on March 12, 2019

Blue Slide Park, a playground located inside Pittsburgh’s Frick Park, has received a fitting Maps app update in honor of the late Mac Miller.

Though no official announcement has been made by local officials or anyone on Miller’s team, the @MacMillerMemoir fan account pointed out on Monday that the park now shows up as Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Park on Apple Maps. On Google Maps, the area pops up as Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Playground.

As mentioned above (and by fans following Monday’s report), there’s been no official announcement regarding a name change for the park, which also served as the inspiration behind the title for Miller’s 2011 debut studio album. Furthermore, the apparent name update across multiple maps services could also simply be the result of data being pulled from Yelp. It’s unclear when, exactly, the park started showing up with Miller’s name on these services.

Last year, Pittsburgh mayor Bill Peduto acknowledged a fan-driven petition to rename the park, noting at the time that “strict rules” were in place for such moves. However, Peduto also suggested he would support a renaming policy amendment that could potentially speed up that process.

Reps for the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy did not immediately respond to Complex’s request for comment.

Back in January, fans and admiring artists alike including Juicy J and Thundercat celebrated Miller’s legacy on what would have been his 27th birthday.
