Two new canoe slalom courses are being built for the Games: a 300m competition course and a 160m intermediate/training course. A new 10,000sq m lake is also being constructed. This will feed a system of pumps that will provide the 300m course with 15 cubic metres of water per second.
The canoe slalom venue is located on southeast outskirt of Liptovsky Mikulas on the left bank of river Váh. It was opened in 1978 and built by Mr. Ondrej Cibák.
