Riversport Rapids / Whitewater Center at the BOAT DISRICT

The Riversport Rapids/ Whitewater Center is Oklahoma City’s new $45.2 million, 11-acre whitewater rafting and kayaking center, located at the crossroads of I35 & I40.  Easily accessible to metro residents as well as visitors to our city, this state of the art facility is geared for both family fun and elite athlete training. The center was funded as part of MAPS 3, the one-cent sales tax initiative dedicated to metro area projects.

Bentley Flooring installed one of our favorite products, Altro Whiterock Wall Systems, for the center's reception desk, displaycases and the circular bar in the restaurant.   Extremely durable and impact resistant, Altro Whiterock provides a decorative and practical alternative to ceramic tiles and subpar walling systems. Its impermeable, watertight, seamless, wipe clean surface can be incorporated practically anywhere.  Unlike a tiled surface there is no grout involved, so dirt and bacteria have nowhere to hide -- helping to create an extremely hygienic environment.
