Vandalism temporarily shuts down popular zip line at Citrus Heights park

Photos of a damaged zip line at Arcade Creek Park Preserve were shared on social media by the parks district.

Sentinel staff report–
The zip line at Arcade Creek Park Preserve was temporarily closed on Tuesday and part of Wednesday, after the parks district said the attraction’s seat mechanism and wire trolly were stolen Monday night.

In a Nov. 22 social media post, the Sunrise Recreation and Park District shared photos of the damaged zip line, showing a severed wire laying on the ground, and another part hanging from one end.

The district at the time said staff were working to source replacement parts and did not immediately have an estimated time of reopening, however by 3 p.m. Wednesday the district posted on social media that the zip line had been repaired.

“We were able to secure replacement parts and now the Zip Line at Arcade Creek Park Preserve has been repaired by our hardworking staff and it is now back open!” the district posted on Facebook. “There was a line of people waiting that we know appreciated their quick work.”
