Montrose Whitewater Park!?!?!

So, I've heard some rumors, and I read that the funding is in place.

Who's in the loop on this? Where can I find the details??

All I've found online is the "River corridor master plan"


Hell yeah, Montrose!!!

I heard that some of the features are already under construction. Gunnerman in Montrose would be a good bet for info.

It's happening. Not sure where to find details on features, but I remember there being 5-6 kayak/whitewater structures planned.

Yes indeed, Montrose is planning on this being one of the main attractions to bring tourists into the community. I've had a nice long chat with Scott Murphy, the city engineer heading up this project, and was extremely pleased with the professional overall plan of this entire project. The initial plan as of now is for 6 features, mostly stretching thru the Riverbottom park area. The company doing this project is one of the best in the business, so cudos Montrose. If this turns out well it will be huge boost to the kayaking and rafting community in our area. The Uncompaghre River will never be a thrillseeker destination, but these drops will make our town run so much better. I will do my best to keep all updated on progress and hope to start my own rafting business next year. This river is ideal for beginners or older paddlers to learn a new sport. We shall see!!

Top two features are in place, they are looking good, already looking surf able at super low flow. It should be done by April! Shopping in Montrose with kayaks and bikes for pump track and skate park next to ww park. Yea Montrose!

First post!

I just went down to see the new construction on Saturday. It looks great.

I'm also excited as there is often more water in the Unc than in the Gunny for long periods of time. That stretch of the Unc is mostly an irrigation ditch and the farmers in Delta call for water all summer long. It should be a long season for that park.

I wish we could get one of these in Colorado Springs. Ya Ya, I know our water is mostly recycled sewage flowing at 32 cfs...but still....Montrose? They don't even have an indoor swimming pool....
