The proposed Revelstoke Adventure Park for the Greeley area has earned a key approval from the provincial government.

In a decision posted to a Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations website on Sept. 13, the province announced that proponent Illecillewaet Development Limited Partnership (IDLP) has been offered condition tenure on 257 hectares of Crown land to be used for the proposed adventure park.

The key condition is rezoning approval from the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board. Other nominal conditions include things like paying tenure fees, providing a security deposit, and maintaining insurance.

A decision on rezoning could come as early as the fall, and would free up the possibility of construction after that.

The proposed Revelstoke Adventure Park concept would include about a dozen outdoor adventure offerings at the site, including camping, mountain coasters, bungee jumping, zip lining, mountain biking, rock climbing, a wave park and many more.
