A Las Vegas Water Park: Well, well, well this is what I get for throwing away those lil zoning change postcards & not paying attention to the news (saw the news van there about two weeks ago.) Signs #1 & #2. A couple of days ago I thought we were having an earthquake and it makes sense as land has been broken. Sign #3.
It also appears that there is a new Las Vegas Water Park being built.
I went outside and lo and behold - there are trucks and humans in the desert and the earth has been moved! I have mixed feelings about this Las Vegas Water Park as more idjits will be plowing down Fort Apache over the posted speed limit (35 mph).
HOWEVER it will be kind of cool to have some resuscitation via Water Park & anticipated demand from crowds to this VERY depressed & dying commercial area of Southwest Las Vegas (not Henderson as rumors float around!) So the area is somewhere between Maule & Warm Springs west of Fort Apache. I went out on my balcony and caught a glimpse of where this new possible Las Vegas Water Park may be. There were humans & trucks out in the desert:
This potential area for the Las Vegas Waterpark is also Northwest of Rhodes Ranch, North of Huntington Village (around the mountain), West of Sierra Madre at Rhodes Ranch and Immediately South of Faiss Middle School. The name is top secret also but I found this site that makes you say HMMMMMMMMM.
Supposed opening will be by Memorial Day 2012 - gulp - that's a LOT of construction activity.
I have mixed feelings because this is LITERALLY in my back yard and I will miss the serenity of viewing the desert and hot air balloon launches on weekends. Yet, Southwest Las Vegas needs the traffic to revive the floundering commercial activity. I guess I will take one for the team, just give me some traffic lights around here por favor! :)
