The Deschutes River is a popular recreation area during the summer. On those hot days you will find paddle-boarders, kayakers, and inner-tubers floating on the river. However, there is one dangerous spillway where every year someone is injured or killed. There is plenty of advance warning but for some reason there are some people who don’t pay attention or just ignore the warnings.This is about to change though. This city is removing the spillway and developing a water park. Hopefully this will make it a much safer area.
