Shortly after this YouTube was circulated we received this response from the King County Parks Department. It is an example of how grassroots individuals can make a difference when we join forces as one community.

Dear citizen,

We are writing to inform you that GravityWorks has withdrawn its proposal for a zipline facility at Gold Creek Park in pursuit of another location. Consequently, we are cancelling the June 6th public meeting. Working with partners and the community, King County Parks has a goal of creating collaborative and sustainable projects and events that create recreational opportunities, while preserving our 26,000 acres of open space as outlined in our business plan. As part of this process we have appreciated the input you have provided and your engagement in this effort. We hope that you continue to enjoy the park and please do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions.
