    From the St Catharines Standard:

    Four zip line attractions could be up and running next year in Niagara Falls if a proposal by the Niagara Parks Commission gets the green light.

    The agency held a public information session Thursday at the School of Horticulture to unveil plans for what it hopes will be the newest Niagara Falls attraction.

    The proposed zip line sites include a line that runs parallel to the Whirlpool Aero Car above the whirlpool and a second one that would run from the Maid of the Mist boat plaza to the power station near the base of the Falls.

    A third line will operate from Rapidsview parking lot and a fourth will be at Thompson Point.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The plan has been talked about for years. The goal is to reduce congestion in the area of the Horseshoe Falls.

    The plan calls for the relocation of the Niagara Parkway to the west just south of Table Rock.

    Residents had an opportunity to view the plan, along with two others, when the Niagara Parks Commission held a public information session Wednesday at the Whirlpool Public Golf Course on the Niagara Parkway.

    The other two plans related to the year-round, fully accessible Falls Incline Railway and repairs at Oakes Garden Theatre.

    The relocation of the Niagara Parkway would begin just past what is known as the Bridge Of Flowers at Table Rock and would involve changes to the current parking lot behind the old Canadian Niagara Power building and the area near the Niagara Floral Showhouse.

    “This is a proposal. Right now, we are getting feedback from the public and stakeholders so that then we can make some changes based on some of that feedback and hopefully finalize a plan that we can move forward with,” said Marcelo Gruosso, executive director of engineering and planning for the NPC.
