Council asks Wild Rivers to submit plan for Great Park attraction-OC Register,8/15/07
QuikQuote: News that Wild Rivers would close for good Sept. 30 sparked a "Save Wild Rivers" Web site and a Facebook.com group dedicated to keeping the water park open. Also, a pen-and-paper petition sprang up for Camp James, a summer camp that serves about 2,000 children, including about 75 with special needs, each year. The camp's lease, like Wild Rivers', was set to expire this year.
But both leases were extended for one year at the request of Mayor Beth Krom, the Irvine Co. announced Aug. 2.
The "final" extension is meant to give the venues more time "to work on a relocation and exit plan," Irvine Co. senior vice president Mike Le Blanc said in a statement.
