New Buena Vista Park Footage

It is unanimous. The upper wave/hole at the Buena Vista Park is a hit for play boaters of all abilities. It is getting a ton of use from folks just surfing to those like Greg Parker who are lacerating it. Come on by and enjoy some play time at the BV Park.

Nice, I paddled this park this weekend during the blue grass deal and it was lots of fun. The upper wave is great and those lower ones were a bit rowdy.

Good fun

Yes, at high flows, the upper UP Town ( upper most feature next to the bridge ) is great for al and is now the crowd favorite. Many paddlers are really liking # 3, the Staircase too. That is super friendly also. The bottom 2 are a more stout at this level ( 3,000 + or - ) but the flows will come down soon and it will all get even better. The BV Park is great at all levels, but most paddlers seem to have a blast in all features around 1500 cfs, whcih we may see in a week or so.

Yea it is just amazing what 3500 cfs does for the upper spot it is a super fun uber high water play spot.. I sure wish that every year would give us over 3000 cfs for 35 or so days to get the potential out of this spot!!!

Also if you boys are only hittin up the upper spot you are not gettin in what the Buena Vista park has to offer. The best wave in the park right now is the pocket wave, then staricase, the upper IMO would fall here, then comp hole is great on the river left, and bodacious is just that rowdy but a super fun way to end up your run..

I cant say enough how good overall the park is at these levels so if you are headed over to CB for a few laps on the creeks - bring the playboat and hit up the BV park as trust me it is worth it.
