[Excerpt Friends of the Falls] "A whitewater kayak park near downtown Spokane? Help make it a reality with Friends of the Falls 'Adopt a Rock' program.

A key project identified in the Gorge Strategic Master Plan is the creation of a whitewater park viewable from the new Sandifur Memorial Bridge - bringing new recreational opportunities and community focus to the Spokane River. A $400,000 State grant has already been received, and initial design work has been completed. Estimates show an additional $225,000 must be raised to complete the design, permitting and construction of the park.

'Adopt-a-Rock' in the park and help make Spokane the home of the Northwest's first whitewater kayak park! Each $250 donation "adopts" a rock for the park, and covers the cost of bringing a rock to the project site. Donations include a one-year membership with Friends of the Falls, supporting ongoing work on this project and the overall Strategic Master Plan. We’ll also mail you a 'baby' rock – complete with the Friends of the Falls logo."
