A 25-acre water sports complex will be built on three lakes at the Gilbert Regional Park under construction in South Gilbert.
The $35M water park will be a public-private partnership between Gilbert and The Strand @ Gilbert, a locally-formed company.
Town Council approved the agreement by a 6-1 vote Feb. 21, with Vice Mayor Eddie Cook voting in dissent.
John McLaughlin, Strand Resorts President and CEO, said the park is in the design phase and expects to begin construction in 90-120 days. He expects the park to open in summer of 2020.
