ORLANDO, FL - Aktion Parks, a subsidiary of Correct Craft and sister company to Nautique Boats, partnered with the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation & Open Spaces Department to break ground on South Florida’s first watersports cable park, the Miami Watersports Complex (MWC) at Amelia Earhart Park located in Northwest Miami at 401 E. 65th Street.
Completion of Miami Watersports Complex is scheduled for October 2014, and it is expected to draw wakeboarding enthusiasts, professional competitors and world-renowned competitions to Miami. The park will be situated on a 90-acre freshwater lake that will be equipped with two full-size cables and one two tower cable (which will be dedicated to Aktion Park’s renowned "Get Up Guarantee" program). Currently the park offers boat lessons behind the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23.
"The Aktion Parks team is thrilled to move forward in partnership with Miami-Dade County Parks on the Miami Watersports Complex, and the ground-breaking ceremony is the first milestone of many to come. We are truly excited to have the opportunity to introduce watersports to the diverse population living in and visiting South Florida," stated Correct Craft President/CEO Bill Yeargin. "MWC is the second of many new cable parks Aktion will be announcing in the years ahead. We are excited about the future!" Yeargin added.
Amelia Earhart Park also offers park users rugged mountain-bike trails with mountain bikes available for rent. In addition, the park features the renowned Soccer 5 mini-soccer complex providing a revolutionary small-sided game on enclosed 4G turf fields with bounce-back boards.
