The Grand River Dam Authority (GRDA) announced that the official opening event for the WOKA Whitewater Park will be on April 26th, Friday, at 10 AM.

WOKA is a new whitewater destination located near Watts, Oklahoma, along the Illinois River. The facility is situated on a beautiful 30-acre site in the Ozark foothills. The highlight of the venue is a 1,200-foot long and 100-foot-wide whitewater course, which is located separately from the main river channel. This feature makes WOKA an ideal location for whitewater enthusiasts to test their skills and have fun.

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and Lieutenant Governor Matt Pinnell are anticipated to participate in the special grand opening celebrations of WOKA. The event will also be attended by officials from GRDA, the City of Siloam Springs, and the Cherokee Nation. The generous assistance of the Walton Family Foundation, in addition to the collaborative efforts of these organizations, played a crucial role in making WOKA a reality.

“We are excited for the grand opening of the WOKA Whitewater Park,” said Governor Stitt. “Thanks to the GRDA and the Walton Family Foundation, Oklahomans and Arkansans can enjoy watersports like never before. I’m looking forward to joining our friends and partners to launch this exciting new chapter for families, tourists, and watersports athletes.”

A highlight of the day’s activities will be the inaugural float, led by Governor Sitt and Lieutenant Governor Pinnell, to officially mark the grand opening of WOKA. The event will also feature music, food trucks, and other concessions.
