Low Ropes Course

Low Ropes Course

We're excited to launch a brand new recreational offering thanks to generous donors and a grant from the Erie Community Foundation. Six low ropes course elements have been installed and will be ready for use later this summer. These elements are designed to challenge participants through cooperation, communication, and team-driven problem solving. Groups of all kinds can take on these challenges during a facilitated session with a trained Asbury Woods employee.


The Asbury Woods Low Ropes Challenge Course offers groups an exciting, fresh way to experience the outdoors while working to solve problems as a team.  With the help of a trained program facilitator, groups grow their skills in team building, communication, problem-solving, risk-taking and leadership in an outdoor setting.  Appropriate for both adult and youth groups, the Asbury Woods Low Ropes Course, is a positive, physically active experience that invites participants to challenge themselves in new ways.
