OWA is a joint venture with the City of Foley and its Foley Sports Complex. In 2012, the City approached the Poarch Band of Creek Indians about a partnership to bring an entertainment destination venue to Baldwin County. The Tribe is the sole owner and developer of what is now known as OWA. The City of Foley retains ownership of the sports complex. In conjunction with the integration of the sports fields and event center planned by the City of Foley, the Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority’s (CIEDA) concept for the project is to create a family-friendly retail, dining and entertainment destination for individuals of all ages.
OWA is located at 1501 South OWA Boulevard, Foley, Alabama 36535.
