Repair Made to Manchester Whitewater Park Structure

A long-awaited repair has been made to the Manchester Whitewater Park.

City officials realized soon after the Whitewater Park opened last year that the rock structure below the Marion Street Bridge – known as Structure 3.5 – needed to be modified. Tschiggfrie Excavating was hired to replace the smaller square rocks with a larger flat rock to make a smoother and safer drop at that spot.

The work was expected to be done in the spring, but high water levels prevented the contractor from finishing. And the City wanted to hold off on repairs during the summer so they didn’t interfere with the park’s kayakers and tubers.

The repair to the Whitewater Park structure was completed this past week.
