A zip line course is coming to Creve Coeur Park. The St. Louis County Council approved the contract Tuesday night that calls for building a treetop adventure course over seven-acres of the park.

Outdoor adventure company Go Ape will manage the course which will include ziplines, bridges, cargo nets and and other tree-top activities.

St. Louis County Parks Director Tom Ott says construction should begin in the fall, once the leaves have fallen from the trees.

The St. Louis County Council will decide next week whether to add a zip line course to Creve Coeur Park. The proposed course would be located near the corporate picnic sites on seven acres in the upper portion of the park.

St. Louis County Parks Director Tom Ott said the course would be run by the private Go Ape company, which runs similar courses in other public parks.

Ott said the physical impact on the 2,114 acre park would be minimal, but the impact on the county parks budget would be big, with an additional $100,000 a year in revenue.

Ott said the treetop adventure course would include a lot more than just a zip line. "There's going to be about 30-to-35 obstacles," Ott said. "There's going to be cargo nets to climb, ladders, swings, swinging bridges and then the zip line."

The County Council's final vote on the proposal will be Tuesday, February 19th.
