Venice Beach will get a zip line by July 1.

The Venice Neighborhood Council voted in favor of the ride yesterday, according to Venice-Mar Vista Patch.

The 720-foot zip line ride will be strung between a 50-foot tower near the skate park and a 24-foot tower near the basketball courts. Greenheart Conservation Company was granted a three-month permit to operate the attraction.

Plans to erect a 175-foot ferris wheel at Winward Plaza were halted by the city in April, and then a zip line was proposed instead.
