Based off the Charles City's desire to create a riverfront park following the floods of 2008, and integrating the recommendations from Iowa State University and Recreation Engineering and Planning to develop a waterfront attraction, graduate students developed a market analysis for a kayak park on the Cedar River and made recommendations for linking the new park to downtown. Students also drafted recommendations to enhance the quality of water in the Cedar River through water quality credits trading.
