Kuriftu Resorts and Spa disclosed its plan to open a water park in Arbaminch, 432.5km away from Addis Ababa. While the company is now attempting to select sites among three plots of land availed by the City’s administration for the water park, it is planning to begin construction next year. The water park is second of its kind. It is to be recalled that Kuriftu inaugurated the nation’s first-ever water amusement park in Bishoftu on August 31, 2019. The park, sprawled on 72,000Sqm of land, features a water play area and 123 international shopping outlets. The water park rests on a 19,700sqm plot, whereas the shopping center lies on the remaining 52,300Sqm.
