Wake Park Atlanta LLC on Thursday closed on nearly 20 acres at LakePoint Sporting Community & Town Center — a planned 1,200-acre mixed-use development in Bartow County.
Called Terminus Wake Park, the project is set to begin construction this fall, according to an announcement. It should be complete by spring 2013.
“The park’s signature will be an elaborate series of rails and obstacles,” Austin Singleton, one of the principals with Terminus, said in a statement. “Many of the obstacles at the park will not be available anywhere else in the United States and some of the custom obstacles will be the first of their kind in the world.”
LakePoint is a $1 billion project, billed as a destination for sports enthusiasts and outdoor aficionados, as well as a community and entertainment venue.
“LakePoint continues to grow as a project and we will be very excited to have one of the best wake parks in the world call LakePoint home,” Judy Sparks, LakePoint development partner, said in a statement. “We started with three sports and now have more than 20 unique sports that will be played onsite, which we expect will attract well over 4 million visitors each year.”
