Crews demolished a gas station last week, on the corner of Hwy 61 and Outer Drive to make room for the first phase of the adventure park.

According to the Duluth News Tribune more cleanup needs to be done at the site of the old gas station, but investors in the project envision a world class outdoor facility including rock climbing, a climbing tower, zip line and ropes course.

The  investment group is in talks with the city of Silver Bay to purchase  3 acres of land as part of the development deal and an additional 3 acres from the Minnesota Department of Transportation along Hwy 61.When this project is complete it is thought to possibly create 15-20 jobs and other opportunities to the area.

In this first phase the priority is to get the climbing rock they have dubbed “Eleanor” exposed and ready for climbers by Bay Days which is July 7th-9th.  Stay tuned for more updates on this project as they unfold.
