Trenton Park could soon be home to a TreeGo aerial adventure course.

A public information meeting regarding the partnership between the Town of Trenton and WorldCan Inc. to develop a TreeGO course at Trenton Steeltown Centennial Park will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at the Trenton Rink Annex at 6 p.m.

The information meeting will include an overview of the TreeGO operation by owner/operator Martin Laviolette. TreeGo has been operating in Centennial Park in Moncton for five years and in Mactaquac Park in Fredericton for the past two years. In addition, the public will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide input.

“The concept of an outdoor aerial activity was identified within the Trenton Park Master Plan unveiled in 2012 by Ekistics Planning and Design,” said Martin Bates, Trenton Parks and Recreation Coordinator. “It is expected that this operation will draw users from as far away as Cape Breton and Halifax in addition to creating a much needed local outdoor recreation opportunity for Pictou County.”

TreeGO would be described as a high rope courses adventure. TreeGO parks usually have four or five treetop courses for adult/junior and one or two children courses with 70 to 100 games as ladders, nets, swings, barrels, footbridges, surf, Tarzan`s jump, zip lines made of wood, rope and wire.

    There were at least 5 comments on this story yesterday, some of which were opposing either the land use, the cost or the facility itself and they have now disappeared. Why is that?

    Treego also tried in Waverly, Truro and Sackville over the past three years to get public land for nothing to setup their parks... didn't work out in any of those locations. Maybe the park should go back to taking in revenue from campers and take back the canteen to create revenue and try to recoup some of the $1 million spent for the pool!
