Carlsbad to build new outdoor water park

Carlsbad’s city council has approved a budget for a water park.

The spending plan contains $3 million for a water park at Lake Carlsbad Beach Park.

City officials tell KRQE-TV that some private donors may donate to the project.

Councilor J.R. Doporto says he has pushed for this for over a year, and he hopes to have it operating by Memorial Day.
