I'm about 5 days late, but they've filed permits to start construction on the waterpark!

Apparently Big Rivers' Facebook page temporarily went live and they decided to delete it in the wake of Harvey. Good move on the PR team. Glad to see they plan on getting the word out though!

I went by Grand Texas on 9-15-17 and took a few pictures of the RV park, Raceway and Empty land that is to be Grand Texas Park. There was nothing to see really as the drone videos show.

According to the local news all the "underground" work is complete and the Water Park should start above construction in a month or so.

You can see my pictures here : https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtlHqTe1z5vQkrYpJWb4i36Sp7Ke8Q

On a side note a Big Texan came out and asked what I was doing in the RV park without a sticker on my window. LOL.

Big Rivers construction progress as of April 6, 2018. Gator Splash, Polliwog Puddle, and Hatchling Hill areas with the landing and walkway have been poured. Cabana framing has begun as we start placing locations for our rental cabanas throughout the park. The entryway building now has a path and walkway poured with the location of a water feature to come soon. Finally, our restaurant framing and outer supports have gone up.


From the video it appears they've begun construction on the wave pool as well.
