Aw, yeah. Can you feel that tingle of anticipation in the air among anyone who owns a double-bladed paddle? The start of the long anticipated river park is close at hand, and kayakers and assorted river rats will be eagerly waiting to throw their boats in the water this spring when the first feature (a series of standing waves) opens. Construction of the first phase is scheduled to start as soon as October, once water levels are low enough. River recreationists have waited years for the play area--a few more months won't hurt.
