It all started with a vision to enhance the lives of the people who live, work, and visit Montgomery, Alabama. Inspired by the natural beauty of its riverside location and its proximity to downtown, the idea to create Montgomery Whitewater was born. Rooted in adventure, outdoor lifestyle, and shared experiences, our premier destination invites people to be outside, challenge themselves, discover new activities, and enjoy their surroundings.
World-Class Outdoor Venue
Located steps from downtown Montgomery, Alabama, and adjacent to the I-65 and I-85 corridors, Montgomery Whitewater is an outdoor destination unlike any other. The park boasts an Olympic-standard recirculating whitewater channel, utilizing the world’s most advanced whitewater technology for paddlesports athletes and competitions.
Montgomery Whitewater isn’t just for the professionals; it’s an outdoor adventure center for all ages. People of all skill levels can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, from the adrenaline-pumping Competition Channel to a more approachable Creek Channel for recreational paddling. If you’re not as stoked on the whitewater, the property features tons of beautiful green space, perfect for relaxing and enjoying live music, a yoga class, or a meal and drinks at the full-service restaurant and bar.
Montgomery Whitewater was made possible by the bold and visionary leadership of state, local, and community leaders that formed the Montgomery County Community Cooperative District.
The Montgomery County Commission, the City of Montgomery, and the State of Alabama led this unprecedented partnership. This transformative venue will catalyze to enhance the quality of place for the River Region, drive economic development, boost tourism, support the military, and recruit and retain talent.
