About Us

The Arkansas River is one of Wichita's most beautiful natural assets, yet it is also one of the most under-utilized. It's time for that to change.

#ActivatetheArk is all about using the river and its surrounding areas as a flex space. That means you can use the expansive sidewalks as a meeting space instead of a stuff conference room. You can boat down the river and give your gym's rowing machine a break. Host a riverside yoga class. Rent a bike and cruise alongside the water. There's no limit to how you can #ActivatetheArk - you just have to get out there and do it!

Our mission is to show - not just tell - why Wichita has one of the best rivers in America and to encourage residents to take full advantage of this incredible water trail nestled in the heart of downtown Wichita

Come see why the Arkansas river is so much more than just a body of water that runs through Wichita!
