If it’s a man made park, it won’t look natural/I don’t want concrete all over the place


Neither do we! Most all kayakers, rafters, SUPers, etc, enjoy the experience of being in a natural environment. We want the river to look as natural as possible. The bulk of whitewater parks are made with mainly natural stone. The current target for the park is east of the College Avenue bridge. This currently has a concrete diversion, concrete wall, and large pile of rocks. It is far from natural. Part of the goal of the Downtown River Project is to restore this to a more natural environment, the whitewater park features will fit in well with this.
