Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Most Hon. Dr. Hubert Minnis, today toured the construction site of Baha Mar’s water park. The $250 million-dollar water park is part of Baha Mar’s Phase II development.
The family-friendly recreational area is geared toward all ages and will be heavily influenced by the natural environment. Work on the project started in November 2019 but was temporarily suspended in March 2020 due to COVID-19 before restarting again.
The tour of the site was led by Baha Mar president, Mr. Graeme Davis. Approximately 85 percent of the value of the project has been contracted to Bahamian companies. Three-hundred and fifty to four hundred Bahamians have been employed daily since the restart of the project.
It is expected that approximately 400 new jobs will be created following the opening of the water park in July 2021.
