We are learning more about what will make up the planned Grand Texas Amusement Park.
The Grand Texas Sports and Entertainment District says the park located in east Montgomery County will feature a water park, sports complex, and retail shopping. The planned park is being built for upwards of $200 million.
Ashley Higson with the GTSED says the sports complex will be quite large, "These will be tournament play fields that are going to be available for up to 200 teams at a time to play on."
The park will also feature a large retail shopping and entertainment district called Downtown Texas, "This is our secondary enteraintment and shopping area. It's going to consist of 450,000 sq. ft. of retail space and secondary entertainment space."
But the most anticipated portion of the park will be the Big River Water Park. Plans for the park were recently increased from 30 to 40 acres. Higson says the water park will be the first part of the park to open, "The water parks is expected to open in the spring of 2015."
