The town of Eagle is excited about the first phase of the Eagle River Corridor Plan implementation! In April of 2016, town of Eagle voters approved a 0.5% sales tax to fund a variety of park and trail improvements including the River Park project.
There are two main components of the project:
- In-stream design and construction of the whitewater park.
- Upland park design and construction on the north side of the river.
Once complete, the Town of Eagle will have a world class whitewater park and a new recreation amenity that will not only serve the members of our community, but will provide a venue for whitewater competitions, community events, and more!
First Concept Plan for the Upland Park Revealed!
At the second Public Input Gathering for the Eagle River Park design on April 12, 2017, members of the public saw the first concept drawing of what the park could look like based on their feedback from the first meeting. The concept plan and the full presentation can be found on the Upland Park Design page. Comments on the concept plan are being accepted through April 28th.
