Years in the making, moments from completion
I received an email from the executive director of the Spokane River Forum, Andy Dunau, with the below photos. The Redband Park Boat Slide is under construction and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month. This multi year, multi organization project has been quite the undertaking for the Spokane River Forum's director, but as we draw near completion the puzzle is starting to come together.
With limited access along the Spokane River that is adjacent to existing parking lots, the once Glover Field was a perfect choice for this project. Being near the base of the falls, the boat slide will be the upper most boat access and open up the great Spokane Gorge for rafters, drift boaters (high side only FYI!), kayakers, and other boating enthusiasts. It is a monumental accomplishment for sure and will be enjoyed by many.
We will keep you up to date on it's progress in the near future.
