EAGLE — Eagle will debut its new water park in style on Sunday, May 26, during its River Jam celebration.

The Eagle River Park grand opening will include free rafting with Timberline Tours, open to everyone who arrives before noon on a first come, first served basis. Some age restrictions may be applied due to water levels.

Everyone is advised to dress to get wet and even those who opt out of testing the new park rapids can enjoy free kids activities, lawn games, live music and free hot dogs.

Everyone should dress in a way that anticipates getting wet, but Eagle’s River Jam party includes lots of family fun activities that happen on dry land.
