Kennebec Journal: Twenty years in the making and 10 years of planning for a whitewater park in downtown Skowhegan crested Tuesday night [February 11] with a presentation of a digital model of the $4.3 million Run of River project.

Project plans call for a whitewater rafting park in the Kennebec River Gorge through downtown Skowhegan, and with it, town officials hope, an economic boom that will draw visitors and jobs to Skowhegan.

“The idea is to bring people to town,” Selectman Newell Graf said. “Come spend the weekend and run the river.”
