POUDRE RIVER WHITEWATER PARK

FORT COLLINS, CO

Creating a New Adventure

The Poudre River Whitewater Park is is the first whitewater park to be created in northern Colorado and includes boating features for kayaking and tubing, a pedestrian bridge, children’s play area, new paved trails and walkways, and 3,000 willow whips lining the river’s edge.

More than 10,000 cubic yards of rock materials are included in the river, and 100% of river rock extracted from the Poudre River was repurposed within the park. Three wooden benches were repurposed from trees removed from the project site and were placed throughout the park. Furthermore, ECI worked with Colorado Parks and Wildlife and a fish biologist to install a passage in the Poudre River for safe transport of fish.
