Mississippi River: Minneapolis, MN

This project will return the river to the people and tie in nicely to the historic legacy of water power on the river front.

A New Vision for St. Anthony Falls – Minneapolis is in the process of reclaiming the Mississippi River waterfront. City leaders have considered a whitewater centerpiece in a new riverfront park which would provide:
- Reliable water flow from St Anthony Falls Lock and Dam
- A design that works well at various flow levels
- Large waves whitewater for experts
- Family–oriented rafting with a return conveyor
- Great visibility from downtown Minneapolis and the historic stone arch bridge
Features of the whitewater course include protection from flooding and controlled hydraulics which are ideal for freestyle whitewater paddling.
