Zip line over marshland in plans for aquarium project

VIRGINIA BEACH

Imagine climbing through the trees high above lush marshland.

That’s the vision of the Virginia Aquarium Marine Science Center’s latest phase of development.

The City Council will hear plans for the aquarium’s aerial adventure course at a presentation Tuesday. The council is scheduled to vote on the project afterward.

The aquarium’s foundation would partner with Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation for the expansion, said Brian Solis, a department administrator. Highlights would include a zip line to a ropes course over a 5- to 10-acre coastal conservation garden.

The garden would be free
