The idea of building a water park in Winnipeg may not die in the water.
On Wednesday, Mayor Sam Katz confirmed that Winnipeg was reviewing whether to continue building an indoor water park after a private developer made suggestions.
Katz has little to say about the proposed plan
Including who is behind, where will the water park be built
But the city government is reviewing the matter, he said.
Late Wednesday, a source confirmed that the city was in talks with the Hotel de la Haile-Kanata
Headquartered in 34 hotels in Alberta and SA.
The company is focusing on a location in Fox City --
Own land across from Shaw Park.
Since 2008, Winnipeg has been willing to provide $7 million to private developers for the construction of indoor water parks.
More recently, Katz said that if the city could not find a suitable proposal before the end of the parade, the money would be transferred to other entertainment projects.
He now expects a report on the proposed water park to be released in the coming weeks, saying the city has completed due diligence on the project.
\"The Department is preparing a report and we should finish it soon,\" he said after Wednesday\'s executive policy committee meeting . \".
\"They will give us their advice and we will move on from there.
\"$7 million was originally used for fast shipping, but was later transferred to entertainment --Project funds.
The city first issued the grant to Canad Inns, but when the project planned for the Polo Park area failed to move forward, the city recovered the money.
Winnipeg renewed its call on developers in 2009 to make proposals.
A developer proposed to build a $64 Stadium.

4 hectares of cities
At the southeast corner of the waterway and Waterfront Avenue, it owns land known as plot 4.
This precious land is located in the parking lot near the Shaw Park and the Canadian Museum of Human Rights.
It used to be the center of the rent dispute between the city and Riverside Park, which is a non-
Sublet urban land to the profit company of Winnipeg Goldeyes owned by Katz.
The fact that the Council effectively exempted the city from reassessing the unpaid rent of $233,000 for the land raised concerns about the conflict --of-interest rules.
Fox North Portage partners chief executive Jim on August declined to speculate whether plot 4 is still considered home to the water park.
Shauna MacKinnon, director of the Manitoba division of the Canada policy choice Center, said she did not support the use of public funds to help build water parks.
Winnipeg faces a number of challenges, says McKinnon, where funds can be used for better use, including rapid transportation or entertainment.
\"I just think the whole fixation in the water park is ridiculous,\" she said . \". —
