Built in 2008, Glenwood Springs Whitewater Park features two big-play features on the Colorado River. It’s the first manmade whitewater on the Colorado River and allows all types of watercraft, rafts, kayaks, tubes, and small fishing boats. Situated just west of the Midland Ave Bridge, the park was designed by Jason Carey.
Consisting of one big hole on the left side of the river, and another standing wave on the right side, when the water is high, the two features often blend into one big wave. River crafts that wish to avoid the features can go by them by heading far right.
