Ropes Challenge Course

What is a Ropes and Challenge Course?

The ropes and challenge course, located on the western end of John Griffin Park, is designed to test personal and group strengths and limitations, to explore new ways of communication and to build support networks. During the experience, participants undertake emotional, mental and physical challenges. It is not an athletic competition. The physical and psychological safety of the participants is always of the utmost and primary concern of the program instructors.

Who can rent the ropes course?

Anyone! Sports groups, scouts, church groups, family reunions, etc!  The amount in each group is capped at 15 people.  Any more and you must pay for an additional group.
