National White Water Center

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.
