Treetop Eco-Adventure Park is the GTA’s premier zip line and high ropes park. Our park is geared towards physical education, through our variety of challenging elements, co-operative learning, through our buddy system and the environment, through our environmentally friendly park.

Physical education in our park comes from the 60+ challenge elements ranging from rope bridges and tight ropes to Tarzan swings and floating logs. We have a total of 5 zip lines with lengths from 100 feet to 734 feet and from 10 feet off the ground to 85 feet off the ground.

Co-operative learning is a big part of our park. Our guides are always there to assist clients when in need, but we encourage our clients to help each other through the various elements. We do our best to foster an uplifting and positive experience for even the most fearful climbers so that they can come away from our park feeling accomplished and enlightened.

Our park is unique, we are situated on the Oak Ridges Moraine, a geological feature which plays host to numerous springs, wetlands, and aquifers that provide clean water not only one the Moraine, but the areas surrounding the Moraine, including most of the GTA. TreeTop Eco-Adventure Park sits on the former site of the Oshawa Ski Club, now located at Brimacombe, and all of our trails have existed on this property since the 1930s. All of our platforms and elements are ecologically friendly, there are no major bolts or screw drilled into our trees and the platforms are held in place by a sturdy system of tension and friction. This means that should we ever decide to pack up our park it will be as if there were no park here in the first place. We also play host to numerous woodland creatures that tend to frequent our trails while clients are in the trees, such as; deer, foxes, turkeys, turtles, grouse, Canadian geese, ducks and other smaller creatures.

Treetop Eco-Adventure Park is a member of the ACCT and is certified yearly by the TSSA. We also meet all OPHEA guidelines. All of our guides are trained to NFPA high angle rescue standards and hold certificates in First Aid and CPR-C often having other certifications as well.

We currently have two types of safety systems on the premises. Our Adult courses use the Clic-It system, a mechanical belay system which works with a series of magnets and wires preventing both clips from coming undone mid-air. Our children’s course features the Safe Roller continuous belay system, children slide a pulley on at the beginning of the course and do not have to touch it again until they slide it off at the end.

Treetop Eco-Adventure Park also has the only handicap accessible zip line in Ontario.

What an incredible park. The staff are awesome and so professional on and off the course. It is VERY challenging at times but when you get to the ziplines its all worth while. It will challenge you both mentally and physcially but its so worth it in the end when you complete the entire course! So happy we did this. Will go back, but once I am not so sore

 

Had a great time, Cody is an amazing guide and made the experience really fun. Big Zip was terrifying at first but ended up being amazing! My boyfriend did the entire course and I think he would do it again. What a wonderful time, only downside is that it was pouring rain and it was really shocking that they would have people do this slippery course in such a dangerous way. I wear glasses and if I was doing it, I wouldn't have been able to see for the rain.

 

You can't ask for anything more for your children's development than this! Loved the escape into the trees, but more than that, this activity teaches them how to conquer their fears, that it's okay to fall (you just have to get back up), confidence in their abilities, and of course pride in their accomplishment when they are done! Great exercise outdoors with clean air but also so much more! Now comes the real test, can mom do the same on the adult course!
