Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum Says, "You Climb a Tree, We'll Plant a Tree!" - Arbor Day Weekend April 27 – 29
The Park will also be giving away free tree saplings to the first 100 climbers on Friday. First come-first served.
Since 2015, The Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum, along with the other Adventure Parks operated by the Outdoor Venture Group, have donated $11,600 to the Arbor Day Foundation from this program. This means climbers at these Parks have planted 11,600 trees in our national forests.
Tickets to climb during Arbor Day Weekend at The Adventure Park can be reserved online at the Adventure Park's website here.
- About The Adventure Park -
As always, The Adventure Park features its special combination experience of zip lines mixed with challenge bridges between the trees that keeps people coming back for more. The Park's friendly staff is available to answer questions and assist from the moment customers arrive to the moment they conclude their climb and return home with satisfied "I did it!" smiles.
The Adventure Park is not one single aerial treetop trail but a variety of different, color-coded aerial trails of differing challenge levels—beginner through expert—that climbers choose from depending on their age or climbing experience. These trails consist of platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood and rope to form "crossings" of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park's "always locked on" system of interlocking safety clips. Before venturing onto the trails climbers receive an interactive orientation and practice session.
The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum is designed, built and operated by Outdoor Ventures. It is easily reached off exit 47 of the Merritt Parkway. Hours and prices will be found here.
