Montgomery city and county officials and business leaders broke ground Thursday on a major project that will bring recreational amenities, entertainment and retail to a site along the Alabama River, just west of downtown.

Montgomery Whitewater will feature freshwater rafting, kayaking and canoeing, as well as zip lines, hiking and mountain biking trails, and ropes courses. The 120-acre recreation and entertainment complex is slated to have a conference center, restaurants and facilities to accommodate a variety of activities, including live music and day camps, that will draw residents and tourists.

Gov. Kay Ivey, Montgomery Mayor Steve Reed and Montgomery County Commission Chair Elton Dean were among the officials participating in the groundbreaking before a large crowd of well-wishers.
