Council to Continue Water Park Talks

Although it is expected to feel a lot more like winter this week, the Greenville City Council may spend some time Tuesday talking about a summertime activity. The Council is scheduled to meet in executive session during Tuesday’s agenda to discuss the Splash Kingdom water park which has been proposed for Greenville.

The regular agenda is set to begin at 6 p.m. inside the Municipal Building.

Not much has been said about the Splash Kingdom situation since the water park expressed interest in coming to Greenville two months ago.

The Council voted in October to instruct Board of Development President Greg Sims to pursue a memorandum of understanding agreement with Splash Kingdom, rather than Hawaiian Falls, which had also indicated it wanted to build in Greenville.

Splash Kingdom is wanting to build their fourth water park development in Northeast Texas, to go along with their existing facilities in Canton and Shreveport, La. and a park under construction in Hudson Oaks, Texas.
