It’s National Water Park Day, and the Town of Little Elm is excited to announce that we are breaking ground on a very exciting water park of our own!
The groundbreaking ceremony for what’s currently known as the Little Elm Aquatic Park will be held on Wednesday, August 7 at 4:30 p.m. at the Little Elm Recreation Center Gym.
The 42,000 square-foot facility will be adjacent to the Recreation Center and will feature a retractable roof and sides that open to the outside, a double FlowRider® indoor wave surfing machine, slides, and an activity pool.
The site will also have two lap lanes, a large play structure, a splash pad, and fun for the entire family – all year long.
“The goal of the project was to provide a one-of-a-kind amenity that can be used the entire year, no matter the weather,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Chad Hyde.
The aquatic park is one more unique amenity in Little Elm’s developing Lakefront District, a destination district for retail, restaurants, and recreation.
The waterpark will also have party rooms, cabanas, and a mezzanine terrace for entertaining.
“There will be something for everyone and all ages from slides to a lazy river. You can come to play, be active, or just relax,” Hyde said.
The project is expected to be completed in early 2021, but Hyde and many others in the community are already looking forward to the doors opening.
“It has been a long-anticipated project that residents have asked for year after year,” Hyde said.
The Town of Little Elm is crowd-sourcing a name for the aquatic park. Participants can share their name ideas for the aquatic park online at www.littleelmaquaticpark.com for a chance to win a free family membership good for both the aquatic park and the Little Elm Recreation Center.
