Join us at FUNC (Fun on the Uncompahgre) Fest for family fun, a food truck village, a beer garden, live music, vendors, and water sports competitions on the Uncompahgre River in Riverbottom Park!

The Water Sports Park (WSP), located on the Uncompahgre River in Riverbottom Park in the heart Montrose’s premier parks complex, consists of 1,000 feet of river channel. The WSP is one of the largest in the state of Colorado and one of the few in the U.S. to be accessible by ADA standards. Designed with all citizens in mind, from ankle waders to expert kayakers, the WSP is complemented by terraced spectator and beach areas, allowing a safe space for viewing right on the river. Sustained irrigation flows on the Uncompahgre River make the park an enticing destination through late summer, long after other parks have lost their luster.
