'City Park Adventure' is due to open this May
Work has now begun on building Battersea Park’s new family-friendly treetop adventure course.
Go Ape, the forest adventure company with 28 sites across the country, has started creating its first ‘City Park Adventure’ attraction in the park, suitable for anyone aged six and over.
Incorporating some of the park’s taller trees, the tree top obstacle course is promising a thrilling and challenging leisure experience employing state-of-the-art safety features under the close supervision of fully-trained members of staff.
It will be the first of its kind in central London and it is expected to open in May providing up to 30 full time and part time jobs for local people.
Environment spokesman Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “The equipment used to create Go Ape’s treetop platforms and obstacle course is specially designed so that it does not harm or damage the park’s trees in any way. This was a really important consideration for us when it came to negotiating this agreement.”
Go Ape’s business development manager Ben Davies added: “It’s great to be hitting another milestone for Go Ape as we move ahead with the construction of our new City Parks site. We believe it will bring significant benefits for adventure-seeking visitors as well as the local economy. Battersea Park is an iconic location with a great family atmosphere.”
