The whitewater park is at Pumphouse. This was a great partnership by many different agencies and organizations to enhance the user experience and to protect important west slope water rights that keep water in the River.
So the wave is great. More people should go. I get too tired paddling by myself and one other. If you are a novice kayaker, this is great place to work on rolling, ferrying and surfing. Current flow are great with eddy access to both features.
Dave, I guess I'd say it's subjective. I only live about 40mins. away so It's great for after work. 2-3K seems to be the best level I've seen so far. Rodeo right, the intended feature, is fairly retentive and gives up bouncy spins. It's a little hard to say as my play boating skills are not a good judge of what is possible. My friend was starting to get a roundhouse dialed in on the surfers right shoulder. Rodeo left, the boat chute, is a good mellow wave with a retentive hole on surfers right. This is a great intro to playboating spot. Neither side is world class and you have to be fairly precise to be retentive. I'd love to get some motivation from seeing what some better boaters can do.
