Arkansas River - Buena Vista Whitewater Park

Colorado-US  

Description

This park has 5 or so holes/waves. Found at the end of Main street in Buena Vista, CO.  There are 2 main locations.  The upper starts at the soccer field area adjacent to the Whipple Bridge which crosses the river.  That is the Uptown Wave.  The second access area is to the south and is accessable in the South Main Neighborhood.  Both are public put ins and take outs.  The park is fun at all levels.  Anything 250 cfs plus makes it worth a trip to play in the park.
