Montrealers will soon have a brand new water park to go to, even in the winter. On the drawing board for a little over two years, the town of Blainville has managed to aquire the 900,000 square foot land it needed to construct what will be known as Aquapolis.

Located just off the 15 Highway in the off-island suburb of Montreal, Aquapolis will reportedly cost $40 million to construct, with $11 million going to building costs and the other $29 million for equipment.The best part of this new water park? Two thirds of it will be indoors, with the remaining section extending to the outside.

A first of its kind in Canada, Aquapolis will be divided up into 4 themed sections:

Relaxation - with a beach, pool, hot tubs, hydro-massage showers, with boutiques and restaurants.

Adventure - with waterfalls, rapids, slides, and a lazy river.

Fun Zone - with a giant aqua tree house, geysers, aquatic hopscotch.

Kids Corner - with a nursery and a paddling pool.

According to the project's spokesperson, the Aquapolis will have a 2,500 person capacity, which translates into about 500, 000 visitors annually, with ticket prices for the day costing around $27.

Aquapolis is only set to open November 2015, so we still have to wait a little while before we can engage in all the watersport fun, but just think about how much less next winter will suck having a full-on indoor water park only 45 minutes away.
