April 23, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
April 23, 2014 - The Adventure Parks of Outdoor Ventures know whom they should thank at this time of the year for all the treetop fun in their parks. —The trees, themselves. So to underscore their appreciation of the fun, beauty and benefits that trees provide us the five Adventure Parks operated by Outdoor Ventures will observe Arbor Day this year by offering free seedlings to the public at each park location, starting Friday, April 25—National Arbor Day. (Storrs Park offer is for Saturday. Please note individual park details & offers below.)

All of The Adventure Parks are designed and constructed with tree-friendly technology and park staff members take great care in maintaining the health and appearance of the trees and forest. Additionally, licensed arborists are on call at all parks to assist when needed. Taking care of the trees is not just good for the trees and environment. Healthy trees are necessary for the parks' success.

    About The Adventure Parks
    The five Adventure Parks all feature multiple "aerial trails" 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 own "always locked on" climbing system of interlocking carabineers (coupling links). Before venturing onto the trails climbers receive a thorough orientation. Trails are designed for self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Park Guides are always available for questions or assistance.

    The aerial trails are color-coded according to difficulty and offer challenge levels suitable for kids, teens and adults, whether beginners or experienced climbers.
