New Las Vegas Waterpark (Splash Canyon) Update December 2011
The new Las Vegas Waterpark (Splash Canyon) is being worked on daily. Â Still moving dirt and being staked out now. Â Press releases indicate it is still looking to open Memorial Day 2012.
The “official” address of the park is 7055 S Fort Apache but I have noticed (from markers and such) that it appears the entrance may be around Arby & Fort Apache. Â As a homeowner who’s home backs up to Fort Apache at the 6900 block, I was hoping that it would be a little further south at Warm Springs & Fort Apache. Â On the following google map the marker is the actual address, the circle is where my home is located, the “X” is where the photo was taken which may indicate the possible entrance & the arrow drawn indicates where I hoped the entrance would be. Â There is vacant land on Warm Springs & Fort Apache which would be easier to widen the streets. Â Who am I though, just a stupid homeowner in the area – not county planning or construction for this project. Â I certainly hope I am WRONG on this observation!
ON A BRIGHTER NOTE, press releases also indicate that the park will NOT sell alcohol! Â This means perhaps less odds of someone busting through the block walls with their cars.
Overall I am thrilled about the idea of adding more jobs and business to the area. Â Not overly thrilled about the increased traffic on Fort Apache. Â Although, as I mentioned in my first post, I am happy to take one for “the team”. Â Las Vegas residents have been wanting a water park in the area since Wet & Wild closed it’s doors in 2004.
Here are my previous posts on this project:
