Toronto waterpark

Sprawling new water park proposed for Toronto

Toronto might get a sprawling 9,300 square-metre indoor/outdoor water park for the winter of 2016 if developer MarbleLIVE gets its way. Although very much in the preliminary stages, the company has announced its intentions to bring the venue to the GTA (Mississauga is also a possibility) for 2016 at an estimated cost of $60 million. It looks touristy as all hell, but the developer does have a point that Toronto isn't exactly flush with these kind of attractions. Sure we have indoor pools galore, but with Ontario Place in the process of redevelopment, there is a gap to be filled.

The idea here is to build an entire complex, one that would feature restaurants, retail, and live entertainment to go along with the water park itself. Before one gets too excited, however, it's worth pointing out that a location has yet to be secured for this recreational oasis. While there are apparently three spots in the running, I won't start worrying about what I look like in a swimsuit until shovels are in the ground. In the meantime, this little promo vid might get you dreaming of warmer days.
