Slivo Pole (Bulgarian: Сливо поле, pronounced [ˈslivu puˈlɛ]) is a town in northeastern Bulgaria, part of Rousse Province. It is the administrative centre of Slivo Pole municipality, which lies in the northeastern part of Rousse Province. The town is located five kilometres from the Danube, along the main road from Rousse to Silistra.

Slivo Pole was proclaimed a town on 29 November 2002. Tatars had settled in the area following the Crimean War (1853–1856), as well as Bulgarians from Rousse and from Romania after 1863. The village was known as Islepol and Slepovo and was officially named Slivo Pole ("plum field") in 1912, as it was called so by the travellers who would stay in the local inn which had a big plum orchard.
