Augusta Water Park Developer Responds To WJBF

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

We have an update concerning a Facebook page that claims that Rapid River of Augusta Water Park will open this time next year.

Augusta's zoning administrator says his office has not received plans for a water park yet. We reached out to the developer and he responded with this statement:

First and foremost, I am not a scammer but a citizen of this community who has been trying to bring a much needed Family Recreational Water Park to the area. Unlike the Splash of Augusta website, the current Face Book sight was set up by an advertiser to survey the communities' interest and not to seek funding from the community. The purpose as well as the 2014 projected date was clearly stated.

There have been and are investors who are interested in the project and who have contacted me personally however, despite the overwhelming community support, they feel that due to previous declined projects, that the city is not ready to be open to the possibility that this project and others can and would financially stimulate Augusta's economy.
