The Redwood Sky Walk was named the Best Aerial Adventure Park in the country in the 2023 USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice travel award contest.
The USA Today 10Best program provides readers with recommendations on top attractions, things to see and do, and restaurants throughout the country. Editors and relevant expert contributors nominate 20 places for each category and then ask their readers to vote for the top 10.
This year the best aerial adventure park category featured the Redwood Sky Walk at Sequoia Park Zoo. As the top attraction, USA Today’s Travel Media Group will feature the Redwood Sky Walk on all their digital and mobile products, as well as social media platforms, reaching their established global audience of more than 66 million readers.
The Redwood Sky Walk at Sequoia Park Zoo is a self-guided interpretive experience designed to educate, inspire, and delight. Visitors to the Sequoia Park Zoo can visit the Redwood Sky Walk to learn about the rich hidden ecology of California Coastal Redwoods, the world’s tallest trees, from an entirely new perspective. As the longest sky walk in the western United States, the Redwood Sky Walk is just under ¼ mile to the end and back and reaches heights as much as 100 ft above the forest floor. The Redwood Sky Walk is ADA accessible and rises approximately 1/3 of the way up the old and second growth trees in the City of Eureka’s historic Sequoia Park. Admission to the Redwood Sky Walk is included in the price of admission to the Sequoia Park Zoo and no special reservations are required.
Since it opened in June 2021, media outlets around the globe have praised the Redwood Sky Walk for the unique and wonderous experience it provides, and the City of Eureka for its innovation.
“We are thrilled that the Redwood Sky Walk has been recognized as the Best Aerial Adventure Park this year,” Eureka City Manager Miles Slattery said. “The Sequoia Park Zoo has long held a special place in our community, and locals and visitors alike have celebrated the recent addition of The Redwood Sky Walk and all of the positive attention it has brought our community.
