Let’s Go Ape For Creve Coeur Park!

Go Ape Grand Opening in Creve Coeur Park

Go Ape and St. Louis County Department of Parks and Recreation held a grand opening of the first treetop adventure course in Missouri on July 26 at Creve Coeur Park.  Under this public private partnership, Go Ape and St. Louis County Parks will offer residents and tourists of the St. Louis Metropolitan area a unique outdoor experience that allows participants to live life adventurously and experience Creve Coeur Park from a new vantage point, from 40 feet up in the trees.

Go Ape is a highly interactive adventure where participants are equipped with harnesses, pulleys and carabineers and receive a 30-minute training session before they are turned loose into the forest canopy.  The course at Creve Coeur Park will provide visitors with 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise.  The course features five ziplines, including the first skateboard zipline in the Midwest, two Tarzan swings and over 40 other challenging and fun obstacles. The course is designed for all athletic levels and encourages participants to push themselves and turn “I can’t” into “I can.”

“St. Louis County Parks is very excited that Go Ape is bringing its Treetop Adventure Course to Creve Coeur Park,” said St. Louis County Parks and Recreation Acting Director Tom Ott.  “Go Ape is a great addition to St. Louis County Parks, which offers a variety of recreational programs and activities for its residents.  This will be another recreational opportunity for residents and visitors who want to enjoy the outdoors.”
