Name: National White Water Center
Last Visit: Aug 2007
Description: An artificial white water river. It has been a few years since I was there last and they have added a lot of sports themed things to do. It is a cool place to take action pictures of white water Kayaking and rafting and other sports. There are a great many other things to do. There are a lot of events though the year also that could be photo opportunities. Of course there will be more going on in the summer.
GPS Address: 5000 Whitewater Center Pkwy, Charlotte, NC 28214
Parking: Lots of parking 5$ day.
Cost: 5$ parking fee. You can look take pictures of the activities for free. If you want to do any of them then it costs more. See the web site for costs. I think you can hike walk the 20 miles of trails for free, but they are heavily used by mountain bikes perhaps not the best place for hiking.
Difficulty: Easy to walk around the white water river it is mostly flat and concrete, Trails will be dirt and take more effort.
Kind of photos: Action Sports white water and other sports.
