Salida Whitewater Park Improvements

Posted by Spalding Hurst

March 8, 2010

Contractor Ted Seipel Construction’s Colorado Riverworks is on schedule to complete the $375,000 whitewater park by the end of March. The park, designed and engineered by Jason Carey of RiverRestoration.org, will provide exciting whitewater play holes for kayakers interested in executing spectacular stunts and surfing maneuvers…
A grand opening is planned when the park is complete, plus it will get a proper indoctrination during the June 25-26 Whitewater Festival, which will feature some surfing competitions for kayakers. The park will provide a whitewater thrill during high water summer months, but, in addition, the movement of water from upstream reservoirs to Pueblo Reservoir during the winter months will bring, “some very surfable waves all winter long,” Colon said.
