A developer is going ahead with plans to build a water park in Peach County.
Peach County Commissioners voted Thursday to put $300,000 they've budgeted towards the building of a roadway for a new water park.
The park is set to be built near the intersection of Highway 41 and Lakeview Road.
Elizabeth Hartwell, a manager at Monkey Joe's, likes the idea of the park coming.
"It's exciting because usually, you have to travel and traveling with kids is not that fun, if you have any, so a water park local, I think it'll be great," Hartwell said.
Since her business also caters to children, she expects to reap the benefits.
"A lot of people don't know about Monkey Joe's and it is word of mouth here in the community," she said, "I think business will increase actually, so I think it's a good idea that they approved this."
