LAGRANGE, GA (WTVM) – Votes have been approved with the city of LaGrange and the school board for a Great Wolf Park Resort, according to the LaGrange City Manager Tom Hall.
This project will be about a $170 million investment and a destination resort. It could employ from 300 to 400 people and there will be 400 to 500 suite rooms in the resort. There is potential for 500,000 people to visit the park, which would be a great impact on the local economy.
It will also feature a 93,000 square foot indoor water park with outdoor water features.
The Great Wolf Park Resort would be located at State Route 219 and I-85.
"This would create a regional draw, an opportunity to get regional marketing to LaGrange for a few days," Hall said.
There will be potential for more restaurants and shopping centers around the area and the city hopes the park will be open by 2018.
