Update on New Whitewater Park in Eagle, CO

Posted: 02/17/2017
By: Kestrel Kunz

Eagle, Colorado - As part of the Town of Eagle’s River Corridor Plan, in June 2015, American Whitewater assisted the Town as they started to develop the Eagle River Park – a whitewater park in downtown Eagle. The Town contracted S20 Design, a well-known whitewater park design and engineering firm in Colorado, to design the Park. After a year of working on the design of the whitewater features, S20 design and the Town of Eagle released updates on the plan yesterday. The updates include a photo album of Existing Conditions at the Eagle River Park site, new descriptions of the four whitewater features, and a recap of the latest Steering Committee meeting, including the guiding principles for the park design.

The new Eagle River Park, “connecting the heart of Eagle to the soul of the river”, aims to improve river recreation opportunities for local Eagle residents, as well as visitors from around the nation. As the final design plans are coming together, American Whitewater applauds the efforts of the Town of Eagle and all those that have worked so hard to make this project happen.
