On Wednesday, Aktion Parks, a subsidiary of Correct Craft, broke ground on its third boat and cable park, Elite Cable Park (ECP).
Elite Cable Park will be part of the new USA Water Ski Foundation (USA-WSF) headquarters and training center to be built at the city of Auburndale’s $25 million Lake Myrtle Sports Complex located at 905 Lake Myrtle Park Road, Auburndale, FL 33823.
Completion of Elite Cable Park is scheduled for Spring 2017, and it is expected to draw wakeboarding enthusiasts, professional competitors, and world-renowned competitions to Auburndale. The park situated on Lake Myrtle, a 76-acre freshwater lake, will be staffed with experienced coaches offering lessons in wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and other watersports of all skill levels. Like Aktion’s other world famous parks (Orlando Watersports Complex and Miami Watersports Complex), ECP will provide Hyperlite equipment for all lessons and host events that feature the award-winning Nautique Boats.
“We are thrilled to begin construction on Elite Cable Park, Aktion Park’s third boat and cable park,” said Bill Yeargin, CEO of Correct Craft (owner of Aktion Parks). “Elite Cable Park will be one of the world’s finest cable parks and as part of the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex will provide world class training and fun to wakeboarders from around the globe.”
The ceremonial shovel-turning, featured representatives from partners including the USA Water Ski Foundation, Aktion Parks, City of Auburndale, Polk County, Visit Central Florida, USA Water Ski, Five Star Family Growers, Rodda Construction, JSK Consulting and some of the world’s greatest water skiers and wakeboarders, on the USA Water Ski Foundation property on the South end of Lake Myrtle.
