Glenwood Springs Whitewater Park is the first man-made feature on the Colorado River, and is a fun place for boogie boarding, surfing, stand up paddleboarding, and kayaking. Surfing in Colorado? Yes indeed. This whitewater park is even a venue for a Rocky Mountain Surf Festival.
Because the wave created at the park is constant, it's a great place to learn to surf-- not to mention that beginners don't need to exhaust themselves paddling out to catch a wave.
In the photo above, the river is high due to an extraordinary snow melt.
At calmer times of the year, even young kids can enjoy boogie boarding in the
man-made wave at this free river park.
