  • The U.S. National Whitewater Center is a non-profit outdoor recreation and athletic training facility for whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking which opened to the public on November 4, 2006.The Center is located in Charlotte on approximately 700 acres (2.8 km2) of land adjacent to the Catawba River. The USNWC is an official Olympic Training Center for whitewater slalom racing. The creators of the Center were inspired by the Penrith Whitewater Stadium built for the 2000 Olympics. The Center's primary feature is the world's largest and most complex recirculating artificial whitewater river. The facility cost $38 million to build, and costs $6.8 million per year to operate. The river channels were designed by three-time Olympian Scott Shipley. In June 2016, prompted by the death of a teenage park-goer, the USNWC voluntarily closed the park's whitewater channels following the discovery of Naegleria fowleri, a brain-eating amoeba, in the park's water. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the park's system for filtering and disinfecting water was inadequate, and that the concentration of Naegleria fowleri in their samples were at the highest levels the CDC had ever seen. New methods for water quality maintenance are being explored before the whitewater reopens. In the meantime, land and Catawba river activities remain open for business.
