ST. GEORGE — A new water park that includes “extreme slides” and a large wave pool in the planning stages for construction was recommended for approval by the St. George Planning Commission Tuesday.
“Splash City Adventure Water Park” is planned to be built in the Middleton area of St. George at approximately 2200 East Middleton Drive just west of Interstate 15 Exit 10.
The park is themed after tropical island destinations with influences from Caribbean and Polynesian locations set along the red rock backdrop of surrounding hillsides.
“Guests will have the feeling of being in a land that is unlike anything they have experienced before,” according to a narrative about the water park by developer Red Cliffs Development and Investments.
Features include waterslides, a 900-foot-long “Lazy River,” a surfing-capable wave pool and play areas for children all surrounded by shaded cabanas.
While the water features are planned to be opened on a seasonal basis, the developer is also seeking permit to construct a 22,179-square-foot “Family Entertainment Center” to be opened year-round on the property that includes a large arcade room, trampoline area and indoor surf machines.
