The entertainment destination is adjacent to a sports complex featuring 16 state-of-the-art multi-use fields and an indoor events center. The outdoor complex is used for team sporting events, such as soccer, lacrosse, football and sand volleyball. The 90,000+ sq. ft. indoor events center will be used for gymnastics, cheerleading, basketball and indoor volleyball tournaments as well as trade shows and conferences.
Grab the family and enjoy a day of spine tingling adventures in our theme park or splash around our refreshing waterpark (coming in the future). Take a romantic lakeside stroll at sunset, catch a high energy sports tournament, browse the latest clothing trends or reconnect with friends over a glass of wine and delicious meal.
OWA is, in essence, a city within a city and has the feel of a small town evolving through time. Distinct districts punctuate the lavishly landscaped grounds. As guests stroll around the lake, they encounter the “Warehouse District,” which is made up of larger scale structures that appear to have been used for manufacturing or as a train depot. These structures look similar to those in Foley used for shipping goods across the south. However, now they house your art gallery, your blues café, your five-star restaurant or your performing arts studio.
Guests continue around the lake and meander down a southern “Main Street,” shopping in your stores for homemade goods and apparel, smelling the fresh roasted beans at your coffee shop or seeing caramel apples being dipped at your candy store. They wander down further and stop for lunch at your specialty sandwich shop or grab a savory treat at your ice cream parlor. The buildings found in this area are smaller in scale and are reminiscent of a Southern downtown.
At the edge of town is a city park area where a local festival is underway. The carnival rides are inviting fun for all ages, from a thrilling roller coaster to an airplane ride for children to a nostalgic game of skeeball. Guests can stop here and grab some cotton candy, taffy, a corn dog or take in the sights and sounds of the festival grounds.
Visitors can take a break anywhere along the way on benches or structures beside the water. In the center of the lake is a great spot for an afternoon rest. The island can only be reached by one of several bridges and is an unexpected discovery where guests can relax for a picnic, hop on a boat for a spin around the lake or enjoy an intimate concert under the stars.
This is our vision. And it’s coming to the Alabama Gulf Coast!
