The city of Franklin, New Hampshire will debut New England’s first whitewater park this summer as part of its highly-anticipated master plan to revitalize the town.
The whitewater course will feature Class II, III, and IV rapids.
The plan involves dramatically improving and expanding Mill City Park along the Winnipesaukee River located in downtown Franklin.
“When finished, the park will consist of 13 acres, with an adjacent 21 conserved acres, and three whitewater features.”
The park will also include a bike pump track, numerous hiking trails, a parkour area, an amphitheater, river viewing areas, lodging/camping options, and a climbing wall.
Franklin, NH is so committed to the revitalization of the area that they’re renaming the town Franklin Falls.
Sounds like an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, right?
