West Sands to build water park

MAI KHAO: Central & City Developments has announced it will build Phuket’s first “water park” as part of its six-billion-baht West Sands Resort and villa project.

The 150-million-baht park will cover 6,400 square meters and feature state-of-the-art water rides, all to be designed and built by Canadian water park design specialist WhiteWater through its office in Korea.

West Sands Sales and Marketing Director Barry King told the Gazette that there are no plans to open the water park for admission to the general public, but said that local residents will be allowed access on special occasions.

The park should be open in June 2008, he said.

The announcement comes while a provincial investigation into claims by local residents that part of the West Sands project is on public land is underway.

Investigation committee member Techin Techawong, Administrative Officer at the Damrongtham Center provincial complaint center, told the Gazette that the committee plans to inspect the site again after the Songkran holidays are over.

Together with representatives of the Mai Khao Tambon Administration Organization and the Phuket Provincial Land Office, the committee will do additional survey work at the site to ensure that the construction work being done concurs with land title deeds and construction permits presented as evidence by the developer, K. Techin said.

However, he added that all of the West Sands’ title deeds and construction permits appeared to be in order.
