WPI DESIGNS WORLD'S MOST INNOVATIVE
WHITEWATER STADIUM IN AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

In July 2013, Whitewater Parks International (WPI,) was awarded the design contract for creating the "River Rush" and "Tamariki River" whitewater experiences as part of the very exciting Vector Wero Whitewater Park at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau (Auckland), New Zealand

The project opened it gates in April 2016 - another first of its kind for WPI, combining a dynamic international level rafting and canoe/kayak paddlesports venue with a state of the art educational/ cultural events centre.

One of the main missions of the Project is to serve New Zealand's youth, aiming to host over 45,000 school children each year in participatory and developmental programming. It strives to be a compelling, adventure oriented activity destination of national significance, offering experiences filled with discovery, authentic challenge, and heaps of inspiration.

The whitewater component of the Vector Wero Project highlights two separate courses - a Class III-IV recreation and competition channel, as well as a Class II-III training and instructional channel, along with the world's first & only purpose-built waterfall - all centered on the site of a seven-element tourist attraction, designed to engage, educate, entertain, and encourage interaction.


“We were particularly impressed with WPI’s track record of integrity, their innovative approach, and their reputation for coordinating diverse client needs through careful and smart planning.”, noted Vodafone Events Centre CEO Richard Jeffery.

“Their in-depth understanding of facility operations, commitment to value-engineering, and proven design role in successful Olympic projects, especially the London 2012 facility in Lee Valley, made Whitewater Parks International the obvious choice for us.”

WPI is proud to be a part of this visionary project and applying its signature innovative, sustainable, and cost-effective insights to the design process.
