Cedar River Recreational Project Update

The City of Cedar Falls broke ground on the Cedar River Recreational Project in September 2023. The project will provide a multi-use park to bring life back to the Cedar River. It consists of recreational improvements, including multiple kayak play areas, fishing jetties, habitat spawning pools, and water access points, along with riverbank improvements and trail additions. The project is not only a recreational endeavor, but will directly impact the local economy, retaining residential numbers while also drawing new families, businesses, and visitors to the Cedar Valley.

As work continues, hear the latest news on the progress during a 'Currents Upclose' video update from Cedar Falls Civic Engineer Matt Tolan and Riverwise Engineering Technician, Ty Graham, including information on the current river level and the timeline of construction. The video can be viewed below or by clicking this link.
