Slacklining is the sport of walking a small, flat nylon rope between two anchor points. The most common anchor points for slackline ropes are between two trees. Because there is potential for patron injury and damage to tree bark, surrounding turf and landscaped areas through repeated and overuse for slacklining, Austin Parks and Recreation Department desires to regulate slacklining activities.
Permits are required for all slacklining activities in parks. There is NOT a fee for this permit.
