From the Niagara Falls Review:
The public should know by the end of the year whether a zip-line attraction above Niagara Parks Commission property will be a go.
Staff is preparing a report on the idea, which commissioners will likely deal with at their December meeting, said NPC chairwoman Janice Thomson.
She said the report will include input from professionals and the public, staff comments on how to possibly mitigate concerns and any potential amendments to the concept. It will outline pros and cons between the parks commission potentially operating the attraction versus the private sector.
Thomson acknowledges any proposal dealing with nature areas can strike a nerve with people. That’s why she’s pleased with the “tremendous level of support” the possibility of two new zip-line attractions at Dufferin Islands and Thompson Point, which is directly across from Whirlpool Golf Course, has received.
