Whitewater park coming closer to reality

Posted on Thu, Aug 26, 2010 at 10:41 AM

The Spokane City Council voted unanimously Monday to support the creation of a whitewater park within city limits. Though the vote puts the park a step closer to completion, permits must still be applied for, and an arduous Environmental Impact Statement must be completed.

The proposed park would be near the Sandifur pedestrian bridge just west of downtown Spokane. The river’s bottom would be modified to make a higher quality run for boaters, and the area would be constructed with restrooms, a new parking lot and better trailheads.
