A-first-of-its kind attraction at The LakePoint Sporting Community and Town Center in Emerson may be opening its doors soon. 
Hometown Headlines reports construction on North America’s largest Cable Wake Park is slated to begin soon at the sporting complex. 
Estimated at around 20 acres, The Terminus Wake Park will feature multiple lakes with rails and obstacles aimed at both the beginning and avid wake boarders alike. Pat Panakos, a developer in the project, also expects the park will be a venue for world-class competitions. 
The Wake Park will be the first site to open at LakePoint. At its projected 2014 open, the $1 billion complex will host several major tenants, including Bass Pro Shop and the North Atlanta Soccer Association, and is estimated to bring upwards of 26,000 jobs to Bartow and surrounding counties.
