Squamish Rope Runner Park is uniquely designed for the town beautiful mountain location, and purpose built to fit in with the surrounding area.

People can choose a unique path along the circuit, balancing over wooden beams, running like a ninja warrior, jumping off the tower at 15 meters or simply navigating through the obstacles. There are different levels of â€˜elementsâ€™, ranging from easy to difficult, with many choices for all ages.
There is no experience required, and each session starts with an orientation and all safety equipment is provided. Minimum age is 7 years old OR a minimum height of 125cm (49in).
