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 4.3 acre 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!
Revised Upland Park Plans – Coming Soon!
The Town Board of Trustees gave the River Park design team direction to move forward with Upland Park designs without encroaching on the Johnson and House property (Barnes Ranch). Changes in the site plan include a new alignment for the park entrance planned on the east end of the site. The design team has been hard at work with this direction and are excited to receive public comment on the revised plans. Plans will be posted shortly for review and comment. Community members can submit comments through the website or in person at the Eagle River Jam and the Eagle Outside Festival as we kick off the summer. Come check us out and tell us what you think! More details on the Get Involved page.
