In the June 28, 2016 meeting the Great Park Board directed staff to draft a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the development and operation of a waterpark within the Great Park. While we were disappointed that we were not given the opportunity without going to bid we are confident that, with your help and support, we will eventually be selected to develop the New Wild Rivers.

It has been a while but we hear that the RFP will be presented to the Great Park Board for their approval in the October meeting. This is an election year so the decision on whether the waterpark will be delivered to you by Wild Rivers or another company will be decided by the City Council in 2017. There are three City Council seats up in the election. Christina Shea is up for re-election. Steven Choi is running for Congress and Beth Krom is retiring. All three of these current Council Members have supported Wild Rivers in the past. In addition Anthony Kuo, the planning commission chair, is running for City Council this year. Anthony has been a staunch supporter of Wild Rivers too.

While we have not spoken to the other candidates so we do not know whether they support us or not we do know the both Christina Shea and Anthony Kuo have been championing our cause.

For more information about these two candidates visit their websites:



Thanks for your continued patience and continued support as we move through this very long process.
