An outdoor family fun center with a go-kart racing track overcame furious neighbors’ objections last week from nearby residents concerned with noise and plans to open by the end of the year.
Planning Commissioner members, acting as the Design Review Board, last Wednesday voted 5-2 to approve the site plan for Santan Adventure Park, which will also include an 18-hole miniature golf course and a free public splash pad.
The project sits on 4 acres at Crossroads District Park at Santan Village Parkway and Knox Road.
“We’re right at the door step of the entertainment district,” said Ben Cooper of developer SAP Holdings. “We see this as a very positive thing for Gilbert. We think it will be a fun little thing to do within Gilbert with your family.”
