Whitewater Park Video
WHEN IS THE PARK OPEN?
The Whitewater Park is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round. The City of Manchester does not close the river. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) would be the only agency allowed to close the river, and it’s not likely to happen.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Zero. Because of gracious donors, the Whitewater Park is open to the public and there is no cost or admission to ride the river.
HOW LONG IS THE RIDE?
There are 6, 18 inch drops and spans over 800 feet in length.
HOW DO I GET BACK?
There is a paved trail to walk back to the start of the course, or you can continue to float along the Maquoketa River as far as you’d like and make arrangements for pick-up with friends or the outfitters listed below.
