GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Brown County Board of Supervisors is signing off on a $500,000 adventure park across from the NEW Zoo in the reforestation camp in Suamico.

The board approved the park that includes a ropes-challenge course, a rock climbing wall and a pair of zip lines. The dual zip lines would run across the tree tops starting from the reforestation camp’s fire tower near the zoo entrance.

The $500,000 would come from the county’s budget surplus according to Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach.

A day at the proposed park would likely cost about $20, and include admission to the NEW Zoo.

Part of the attraction could open this fall, but organizers say a full opening isn’t expected until the spring of 2014.
