SCOTTSBORO, Ala. (WHNT) — Scottsboro is working to put a resort style hotel in Goose Pond Colony Resort and it has been for years; now officials are working to find out if they can add another feature — an indoor water park.

Scottsboro Mayor Melton Potter and other city leaders are working with an outside company to do a feasibility study. “They have been to Scottsboro and visited Goose Pond, and they are working on a feasibility study for a hotel and an indoor water park to be located down there,” Mayor Potter explains.

The city has had plans for years to put a resort style hotel at Goose Pond Colony.

Recently, officials have been working with developers to make that happen. “We’re talking to two or three different developers right now, just waiting on the results of this feasibility study to see what it tells us, what exactly we could use here in Scottsboro.”

The plans for the hotel are concrete but the plans for the water park are up in the air. “The feasibility study will show us how many rooms we need for a hotel, and then look to see if the water park would be a big enough draw to do an indoor water park along with the hotel,” Mayor Potter says, “So we are looking at it like I said separately and together, whether it’s just a hotel or a hotel and a water park.”

City officials say the ideas are a way to compliment what is already available at Goose Pond, for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The study results are expected back in the next several weeks.
