Salida WW Park awarded grant for extension

Just an early heads up that Salida was awarded a GOCO grant on June 18th that will allow us to add a new play spot as well as extend the park below the bandshell in Riverside Park. Other planned improvements are much needed bathrooms for the Boatramp, permenant slalom poles, slalom course improvements and a "playground" (hopefully climbing boulders) for Riverside Park.

I am just barely getting into the permliminary planning stages for the project and we will be targeting construction for 2010 although at this point I could not tell you if we will get the new spot in the spring or fall.

Pretty stoked. The Salida Park has always been my labor of love and as my friends in BV know dollars for the parks are hard to come by in the Upper Arkansas River Valley. A big thank you to the Board of GOCO for seeing fit to award some more dollars to our park! More news to follow.

Mike, you rock. All the time and effort you've put into that project over the years shows. All of us in the whitewater community are grateful for yours and others work making Salida the premier play-paddling area in CO!!! It'll be great to come over and check it out.
