Support Go Ape in Richmond sign now

I support Go Ape and Richmond City Park Officials proposal to build a treetop adventure course in Byrd Park.

Go Ape and the city will provide a unique outdoor experience where city residents and visitors will explore Byrd Parks forest canopy by way of ziplines, Tarzan swings and other obstacles for an adventure lasting 2-3 hours. My family and other Richmonders will have the opportunity to take part in a unique experience, unlike any other in the state of Virginia. The experience will be educational and physically rewarding and allow us to explore Byrd Park in a new and exciting way from within the trees.

In these difficult economic times, 12 new jobs will be created for Richmond City residents, significant tax revenues will be provided to the City and local businesses, restaurants and shops will benefit as more people visit downtown.

Additionally, Go Ape will provide a share of its revenue to Richmond City Parks. This new revenue source will provide financial assistance to maintain the park, continue current park services and add new recreation activities for all Byrd Park users.

As a leader in eco-friendly building practices, Go Ape has built all of their previous 27 courses in an environmentally sensitive manner that does not negatively impact the natural environment to include park flora and fauna. Go Ape, the world's leading treetop adventure course business, has encouraged more than 2.2 million people, worldwide, to live adventurously since 2002.

By encouraging more of our residents into the outdoors, Richmond will be provided with a renewed appreciation for Byrd Park and reap positive health benefits for taking part in a physical activity, away from computers and televisions.

In summary, I support the eco-friendly development of this Go Ape Treetop Adventure course within 6-10 acres of treetops at Byrd Park and the numerous benefits that it will provide to my family and other Richmond residents.
