NEW CLIMBING CHALLENGE UNVEILED AT COLWICK PARK ADVENTURE CENTRE


Nottingham City Council's outdoor adventure centre at Colwick Park unveils its latest adrenalin rush - the High Ropes Challenge.

A new 40 feet high climbing wall, with swing ropes and abseiling facilities is now open to the public. Councillor John Collins unveiled the new facility last week.

The 50,000 course, paid for by funding from the Youth Bank, was designed by young local people who had the opportunity to sample similar courses elsewhere in the country.

The High Ropes is the latest addition to the Colwick Park Adventure Centre which also boasts a wide range of other activities, including: Sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, power boating, mountain biking, orienteering, team building, nature walks and bird spotting.

Colwick Park Adventure Centre is an eco-friendly adventure centre supporting activities in the country park and adventure programmes and environmental education for young people in Nottingham.

The centre's electricity is generated by solar panels and a small wind turbine, water is collected through a borehole, then stored and filtered and all heating is provided by a pure plant-oil burning boiler system making the whole site carbon neutral. These factors, combined with the fantastic location, create an ideal focal point for environmental learning and activities for schools and youth organisations. The centre is also fully equipped with changing rooms, showers, toilets, a small kitchen area and a classroom.

Colwick Park Adventure Centre is open to the public and activities are available for private, corporate and school hire. Contact College Street on 0115 947 6202 ext 238 to book!
