Golden River Park
Description: The whitewater park in Golden, only 20 minutes from Denver and Boulder, is Colorado's quintessential park n' play land. The park has about a dozen different whitewater features making it great for all ability levels. The first rapid is a smooth glassy wave that is ideal for learning how to surf. The park has many eddies making it a great place for beginners to hone their eddy hopping skills. A slalom course has also been setup for events and training. The rodeo hole is in front of the bleachers and is best run far right. There are service eddies on both sides of the hole. The surfer's left eddy has the easiest access. The hole is frothy and good for cartwheels and flat spins. The hole is deepest to surfer's right or downstream left side.
