The City Council has approved plans for a $41.5 million swim park in the city of Tracy, California.
The plan, submitted by The Surland Cos, will see the construction of an aquatic centre with indoor pool, outdoor competition pool and waterslides. It will also feature a fitness centre, picnic areas, a rock climbing wall and a splash playground, reports Tracy Press.
Les Surpa, founder of Surland, said: “This is a communitywide aquatic park for the entire community.”
Surland hired Hotel and Leisure Advisors to examine other California water parks. HLA president David Sangree said that the complex plans will cost $41.5. But they will offer an estimated return of 96% of expenses.
He explained: “We are projecting revenues of $2,751,000 in the first year. That is made up of admissions revenues, annual passes, memberships, aquatic licensing classes, a food and beverage base for an outside operator to provide some food and beverage services, rentals and other income and retail revenue.”
Swim park must “have strong marketing”
The exact costs of the swim park – including personnel, insurance, marketing and utilities – are yet to be examined.
