Gore Canyon Play Park?

Does anyone have an idea of how this is coming along and when it might be ready?

Not knowing anything recent I know they were shooting for April of this year:

New Play Park Comes to Colo’s Pumphouse Run; New Whitewater Park to Be Completed by April 2015 - Paddling Life

With the winter being mild would hope they are on schedule, would love to hear an update as well.

It has been done for about a month. They were doing the final grade in the middle of Feb. We'll see what the wave does with more water. Looks like it could be pretty good.

Nobody will be skipping a second lap to do it at 600 cfs. It wasn't working at all at that level. Hopefully it's better with more water.
