Rockford Park District asks for public input on "adventure park"

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

The Rockford Park District is inviting the community to attend a public input meeting on the proposed Alpine Hills Adventure Park & Golf Center.

The meeting will be held on Monday, February 4 at the Webbs Norman Center Board Room, 401 South Main Street, at 6:00 p.m. The Park District's design team will be in attendance, as will Ryan Neptune, the owner of Planet Snow Designs which builds terrain parks, rails, Olympic super pipes, and resort facilities.

Alpine Hills was donated to the Park District by the Hansberger family in spring 2011. The Park District hopes to turn the 52-acre facility into a year-round park with activities like golf, fishing, hiking, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and more.

The District also plans to include on-site classroom space for environmental education and school field trips, programming for children and adults, and monthly special events.
