A tree-top adventure course featuring multiple zip lines, swings, bridges and other challenges is set to open at 9 a.m. on Saturday in North Park.

The Go-Ape course, located on Pearce Mill Road between the tennis courts and the boathouse, takes between two to three hours to complete. Participants are required to go through a half-hour training session before they head to the tree tops.

The cost is $35 for children age 10 to 17, and $55 for adults.

To make a reservation for opening weekend or for later in the season, visit or call 1-800-971-8271.
