We worked for Morrison Construction on this new build recreational channel. The course is operated by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.

What we did

A new build recreational channel with exceptionally stable and balanced features on a low head and medium flow course.

  • recreational park
  • slalom training
  • freestyle
  • obstacles
  • detailed flow analysis
  • bloc setup

Principally designed to service the main Olympic channel as a warm up area. Then as a legacy to the games as an easier section of whitewater for beginners and intermediate paddlers as well as junior rafting. The course has also become associated with some excellent freestyle features.

… one of the biggest advantages of this system is how easy it’ll be to play around and tweak features.”

— James Bebbington, 2011 World Freestyle Champion

The course is powerful, despite its limited flow, and the features are well defined. Good speed between the features and sufficient depth throughout allows this course to excel despite its low energy pumping head.
