A Nice Christmas present to Falun Whitewater Park! We are awarded a 1.6 M SEK grant from the County Administrative Board (Länsstyrelsen Dalarna). The grant will be part of financing the construction of the park.
CEO Bo-Marcus Lidström made a visit to Glasgow to visit the neat whitewater park built there 2014. Andy Laird, a former paddler, is the genius who invented Rapid
Blocs. That’s the movable obstacles used for parks all over the world. For the park in Glasgow he invented a whitewater park made of prefab concrete . The course was delivered as flat package like a book shelf from IKEA. It kept down costs, construction time, while guaranteeing a very high quality.
Besides very informative meetings, it was also very valuable to see the venue live, feel the atmosphere and discuss improvements. There was an impressive amount of activities going on in spite of being the last weekend in October. The site is a former industrial area, which thanks to the whitewater park starts to come to life and to be cleaned up.
Take a look on these films, whats it’s about!
