A 12-month pilot slacklining program in Covell and Oak Grove parks was approved Tuesday by the Davis City Council.
The parks and urban forest staff will be providing a four-month, eight-month and one-year review of the pilot program and report findings to the Recreation and Park Commission and City Council throughout 2014.
City staff, in conjunction with the Davis Police Department, also will periodically monitor compliance with rules.
Slacklining is an emerging outdoor sport that is continuing to increase in popularity across the nation. It is defined as an activity in which the participant walks on a span of nylon climbing or slackline webbing, positioned horizontally above the ground and anchored at two fixed points.
