After 25 years of operations in Irvine, California, Wild Rivers water park has closed for good. The park, which sat on leased land, has been threatened with closure for several years now, but this time it appears as though its for real.
The park has been rallying fans to get another one year lease extension, but as of now that hasn't panned out. The land the park sits on will be used for a large apartment complex, as well as a few other mixed use development projects.
Owners of Wild Rivers are working with the city to possibly lease some land on the edge of Great Park, allowing them a reopening of 2013.
