Avon Officials Urging Boaters to Avoid or Use Extreme Caution in Avon Whitewater Park


Avon, CO – The Avon Whitewater Park, located at Bob the Bridge in Avon, contains a difficult Class V river-wide water feature during high water. Boaters are recommended to avoid this feature or use extreme caution if running it. The Town of Avon recently upgraded the water features located at the Avon Whitewater Park. While the modifications were designed to enable people to navigate the rapids safely, the increased water level from runoff has made navigating the currents more challenging and potentially more dangerous.
 
Again, the Town strongly recommends all boaters use extreme caution and employ all necessary safety measures when utilizing the Avon Whitewater Park. The Town is in the process of posting signs to properly notice and warn boaters of the difficult river-wide rapids located under Avon’s Bob the Bridge.
 
For questions or more information, please contact Preston Neill, Deputy Town Manager, at pneill@avon.org or (970) 748-4404.
