The course will feature student focused curricula that use activities to strengthen critical life skills.

This park element, phase 2 of the Ropes Challenge Course, offers an opportunity for participants to learn skills such as problem solving, communication, cooperation and teamwork. The course requires physical and mental coordination. A hub and spoke course is built like a wheel; activities radiate from a center hub with a large platform to the outside poles, which are then connected together by other activities.
 
The course will feature student focused curricula that use activities to strengthen critical life skills including decision making, self confidence, positive risk taking, self esteem and leadership." An additional low ropes course is a set of real and imaginary challenges that inspire a group to collaborate to get a task done. Low ropes courses can include cables, ropes and obstacles attached to trees to test strength, agility and balance, and can also challenge participants to confront such fears as those of falling or losing control.
 
Group members assume the role of spotters to ensure safety. To select trees for removal, Parks’ Arboriculturist used these criteria: impact on the course objectives, the health of trees, protection of the canopy, erosion control, tree root protection, and tree value in terms of forest health and diversity. Parks’ Arboriculturist worked to preserve the tree canopy and will replace the trees by a 2:1 ratio as part of the Long Vegetation Management Plan to create a healthier forest across the park. Construction will start in mid-August and is expected to be completed by the end of September.
