Zipline Over Swy-A-Lana!?

This should appeal to just about everyone - have you heard? - as part of the hubbub surrounding the Rogers Hometown Hockey tour, there are a couple installations down at Maffeo Sutton Park right now (until this Sunday, Feb26).

There is FREE SKATING near the park's parking area. It's a small rink but big enough to be fun, especially for younger skaters or for people who love the park and want to say they've done everything possible, there. (Not many people can say they've skated at Maffeo Sutton - unless they're talking about before the Civic Arena was demolished!).

But the best part, I think, is the zipline that is installed and which is BY DONATION. (Donations go to a local children's cause.)

This is a rare opportunity. The zipline runs from Georgia Park (near that old canoe hanging on Front St) down over the lagoon, to the hillock between the playground and Frank Ney's statue.

The zipline was running this past weekend, will be closed during this week, and reopened this Saturday and Sunday (Feb25-26).
