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.
About the park
In 2016, Eagle voters approved a 0.5% sales tax to pay for the whitewater park and trail improvements. Because it was built in the river, the town had to work through the federal approval process with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and other groups.
S20 Design, a premier river engineering and whitewater design company, designed the in-river features.
The Vail Valley is kicking off the summer season with everything from barbecues and restaurant deals, white water rafting and ceremonies honoring those who fought for our freedoms.
