Ribbon cutting held for Alpine Adventure Zone in Ogden

OGDEN, N.Y. (WHEC) — The ribbon-cutting for the new Alpine Adventure Zone at Northampton Park in the Town of Ogden was Monday.

County leaders were joined by families throughout the community to open the unique play area made with more than 100 tons of boulders and logs from White Oak and Locust trees that were located in other county parks. Those species were chosen for their durability and rot resistance according to the county.

This is the fourth of the woodland playgrounds in the Monroe County Parks system.

It features tunnels, tree forts, swings and balance elements and is designed to be accessible to children of all ages and ability levels.
