From the Aspen Daily News (Brent Gardner-Smith): “The Basalt Town Council likes the idea of two kayak play waves in the Roaring Fork River and several overhanging decks on a steep section of riverbank alongside upper Two Rivers Road.

“The features in the river and the cantilevered decks above the river would be built across from the entrance to the Elk Run neighborhood and just downstream of Fisherman’s Park, where today there is a small parking lot and bathrooms.

“Six of the seven Basalt council members agreed the kayak park was a good idea after hearing it would help protect water rights, stabilize the riverbank, attract kayakers, create a riverside park and slow down traffic near local schools and neighborhoods.”
