Glade reservoir would pull during peak flows, the goal of a whitewater park is to extend the season during less than optimal river flows.

In addition, glade has YEARS to go... IF it's approved. Theres no reason to wait for Glade to build this park.

I am proposing my senior design project to design a white water park for Fort Collins or LaPorte. It will be free labor to design it since students will be doing it. I am wondering if anyone knows someone to talk to about where the best place to build one is based on slope and also for legal reasons with land owner issues and water rights issues. I am able to design it and propose it to the city if it all works out, but I could use some advice on the most recent fight for a white water park. If anyone is interested in helping out I think a design is a step in the right direction to have one built. I don't know anything about designing a park but would like to do this as my engineering senior project.

You should send a message to riverwrangler for info and contacts on the past Ft Collins park efforts and refusals.
