Oklahoma City is ready to welcome a new state-of-the-art facility,bringing recreational and sporting activities to Oklahoma residents. This week, Oklahoma City leaders have begun plans for the construction of a new whitewater rafting and kayaking center.
The “Riversport Rapids, OKC Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking Center” is an 11-acre center that will offer various whitewater rapid courses and entertainment facilities for all ages. The $45.6 million project is located near the Sandridge Sky Trail and Slide in the Boathouse District, just along the Oklahoma River and is part of the MAPS 3 city improvement project.
The whitewater rafting and kayaking center will feature different rapid courses, a restaurant, several viewing areas for the public and a pro shop. There will be two channels, perfectly crafted for rafting and kayaking. In addition, a third channelwillbe located in front of the restaurant, ideal for freestyle boating.
Families can also have a wonderful time at the center, simply by enjoying the lovely scenery and watching athletes in action. There are viewing decks open to all and plans to hold live musical performances for additional entertainment for those not participating in a water-sport.
Those who wish to learn kayaking and whitewater rafting can also benefit from lessons and camps that will be offered at the center. Children can also participate in these programs. The facilities will also be used as a training ground for athletes and professional water-sport teams.
Once completed, the center is expected to start operation in the spring of 2016.
