Getting Loveland's Whitewater Adventure Park off the ground and into the water seems to have become an adventure of its own.

The park has been a project since 2015, and in June we let you know that the Whitewater Adventure Park was closer to becoming a reality. Since then, plans have taken a step backward when it comes to developing it.

The Reporter-Herald has the story of how the development company, based in Arizona, that they had on board for the project got into legal trouble. A key officer has been indicted in a fraud scheme, so that developer won't be involved in Loveland's project any further.

The project is now in search of a new developer. Water Valley's Martin Lind was recently asked to take a look at the project, but no further movement on his part is expected soon; McWhinney is another option for the project.

The project is budgeted to cost about $200 million; about half of that coming from a tourism grant. Many tourists, indeed, would be coming to Loveland to visit the Whitewater Adventure Park, west of I-25 and Highway 34, featuring:

  • Hotel
  • Amphitheatre
  • Zip Lines
  • High Ropes Course
  • Olympic-Standard Swiming Channel
  • Conference Center
  • Cabana Island
  • Outdoor Deck
  • Adventure River

Centerra currently owns the land where the park and resort would go, but there is the possibility that the City of Loveland will buy the land.
