The 22-mile long Chattahoochee RiverWalk in Columbus, Georgia opened in 2013. In addition to providing walking and biking trails, it has used the power of two local dams to create a 2.5-mile kayak course, attracting world-class kayakers who use the facility to train. The $26 million project was funded with public/private partnerships, and USA Today called it one of the top 22 man-made adventures in the world. Each afternoon, Georgia Power releases water from the dams, creating level four rapids. The water flow is decreased in the morning, allowing those with less experience to enjoy level two rapids.
