Roaring rapids are not generally associated with an urban environment, but in Oklahoma City community leaders are betting their $45 million investment in RIVERSPORT Rapids, the city’s whitewater course, will add a new level of appeal for both residents and tourists to the ever-growing city.
Nestled in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City and just steps from the thriving entertainment district, Bricktown, RIVERSPORT Rapids is the only urban whitewater rafting facility in the world. In fact, it is one of only three man-made white water courses in the country. Oklahoma City’s course is also unique in that it just steps away from a premier flat water course on the Oklahoma River that serves as the training site for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic training site for canoe/kayak.
