Construction begins on Wavegarden Cove


The groundbreaking ceremony was recently held in Siheung City, South Korea, to commemorate beginning the civil work on the Wavegarden Cove, which, upon completion, will be the largest man-made surf park in the world. The ceremony was an auspicious occasion attended by more than 500 VIP’s, including those responsible for bringing the project to life. They were Choi Sam-seob, the director of the Wave Park, Lee Jae-myung, the governor of Gyeonggi Province, Lim


Byoung-taek, the mayor of Siheung City, Lee Hak-soo, the president of Korea Water Resources Corporation, and Wavegarden’s chief commercial officer, Fernando Odriozola. Plans for the Siheung Surf Park that include a beach almost one km long was initially unveiled last November when the key parties signed a joint business agreement. Business stage 1 will see the creation of Asia’s first Wavegarden Cove on a site covering 166,613 sq m (41 acres), which is on


track to open to the public in 2020. In stage two of the development, the


Daewon Plus Group, the investor of Wave park, will invest approximately €430 million ($481 million) to progressively construct a hotel, convention centre, marina, and ferris wheel. Siheung, a city formerly known for its industrial manufacturing business, will transform its venue into an epicenter for tourism and leisure, anticipating two million visitors per year.


“As could be expected, the


ceremony was amazing”, said Fernando Odriozola, Wavegarden's CCO. “Our hosts are really embracing the sport of surfing and we’re confident that this Wavegarden project will become a mecca for surfing, not just for Koreans, but also for people throughout Asia".
