The Man. The Legend. Gary Lacy.
Gary Lacy lead engineer and founder of Boulder, Colorado’s Recreation Engineering and Planning (REP), has seen the development and growth of Whitewater Parks since he founded his engineering firm in the early 1980’s. “In the early days,” says Lacy from his office along the Whitewater Park he built on Boulder Creek, “town planners thought we were crazy and that you should put fences around rivers to keep kids from drowning….communities just turned their backs to their rivers.”
