Slacklining in Parks and on Public Property

DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION

You can find information about Slacklining here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slacklining  

Slacklining is being done in many Madison city parks.  The Parks Commission has passed a prohibition of doing slacklining in Madison city parks, primarily because of a concern for damaging trees and injury to participants. The slackline (as opposed to tightrope which is more familiar to most people) is usually about 2 feet from the ground but can be higher.  A number of cities have put up poles to which the line can be attached.  I have been asked by some people who enjoy slacklining to encourage Parks to allow slacklining in parks either by putting up poles to use or by defining effective tree protections to be used (see article).  This sport is reputedly good for core strengthening, in addition to improving participants' balance.
