Adventure park proposed for the Berkshires

Developers hope to build a $1.5 million nature-based adventure park in the Berkshire Mountains. The Berkshire Eagle reported that 1,500 acres on Brodie Mountain, bought by Paolo Cugnasca, chief executive of Feronia Forests, in 2007, would be the site of an aerial adventure park in tree canopies. The park is being designed by Tree-Mendous of East Chatham, N.Y. Gerhard Komena, co-owner of Tree-Mendous, said components will be installed using clamps that will leave the trees unharmed. The park would include a canopy network of zip lines and tree forts and a maple sugar harvesting operation.
