Charles City Riverfront Development project – Cedar River, Charles City, Iowa
The most talked about element of the development is the WhiteWater recreation park. Other features include an amphitheater and ravine play area.
The Charles City WhiteWater at Riverfront Park is a park built for all river enthusiasts.
The WhiteWater park is built with three distinct features; all of which have a safer chute on the river left side conducive to bypassing the wave features.
The first feature is the signature Dam Drop that provides glassy front surfing with an easily accessible foam pile for beginner/intermediate freestyle paddlers.
Advanced paddlers will flock to the second drop, named Doc’s Drop. The feature is a powerful and aggressive freestyle hole conducive to dynamic aerial moves. National level competitions will be held in this feature and less experienced boaters will find it challenging to punch the hole.
The last feature is the Exit Exam, which is a feature conducive to front surfing and beginner/intermediate surfing and freestyle moves.
