Riverfront Park needs thrills


The night before the story about the proposed Huntington Park was printed, I sat with my father discussing why more folks aren’t drawn to Riverfront Park like they are to Silverwood. In a moment of clarity, I espoused a notion that most of the rides in the park are, to put it nicely, less than attractive.

So I propose that, alongside the gondola attraction, the city should also offer a zip line feature where people with a knack for adventure wouldn’t have to leave the city for a rush.

If the council is seeking $2 million for an upgrade, why not make it awesome? Lines would be around the park to enjoy such a treat!
