|Reno, Nevada, Truckee River Whitewater Park|
What's it like
The Truckee River Whitewater Park is a $1.5 million project in the downtown Reno district. The park is Nevada’s first whitewater park and kayak slalom racing course. It is located in the heart of the downtown resort area (within walking distance from 24-hour hotel/casinos). It has year-round access with a constant flow of clean, fresh water.
There are 11 drop-pools with a total of 2,600 feet of class 2 and 3 rapids, suitable for a great variety of whitewater activities (kayaks, canoes, rafts, inner tubes) for different skill levels. The design accommodates low water flows to ensure usability during dry spells.
Water temperature ranges between 50 and 70 °F (10-20 °C).
