Durango WWPark work

Just to let folks know the City of Durango is posting signs at 32nd that the whitewater park construction will be starting and they will be closing the WW park from today until mid March. They want boaters to take out at 9th street. We had some of Durango's finest watch us as we got out today at 9th, awesome! Don't know how hard they are going to push this but I do not understand why taking out at the poop plant above the park would be that big of a deal? Durango loves to regulate

So stoked to get an update on the park. Can't wait till our weather turns to winter, fills the mtns with snow, and then the melt off begins. See you all down there.

RIP Clocktower, long live Clocktower

Just had to try the new structure now that it is essentially completed (they just have to cleanup the temp access ramp). Paddled up to it and could do some front surfing and get some spins, but it was mostly rock bashing. Not a low water feature. I assume that the structures up where the flow is more channelized will be good at low water. Fingers crossed.

Fun to get out in some current!

Sunday Walk

I had a walk on the river right side to get a view of the ongoing work at our WW Park. looks like they are making some progress and have moved upstream. It looks like they are working on the next two features above the Clocktower hole.

I was there for 20 minutes or so sunday and nobody shooed me away and they were working. They were setting up the pumps in the coffer dams in the next structure up. Just below corner pocket, it could be called side pocket? They have been working every day I have looked. Must be scrambling to finish for March. CT is wide and took a long time. Narrower sites should go faster.

Was it open? Signs are still up but I put in below them and paddled up...so it was open for me! and a merganzer!

edit: thanks for the pics.
