Water amenities

When the town of Little Elm broke ground on the Little Elm aquatic park in August of 2019, they asked the public to help pick a name for the new amenity. 

Participants were encouraged to submit their best names for the 42,000-square-foot park in exchange for the chance to win a one-year free family membership to the facility and a one-year free family membership to the Little Elm Recreation Center. 

After sorting through hundreds of submissions and going through Council approval, the Town is pleased to announce it has picked a winner. 

The new park will be named The Cove at The Lakefront. Resident Shawn Kint entered the name in early October. 

The Cove will feature a double FlowRider indoor wave surfing machine, slides, an activity pool, two lap lanes, a large play structure, a splash pad, and fun for the entire family.

 “The goal of the project was to provide a one-of-a-kind amenity that can be used the entire year, no matter the weather,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Chad Hyde. 

The facility will also feature a retractable roof and sides to keep patrons comfortable in any weather. Visitors can relax on the mezzanine terrace, outside patios, or in a cabana. Concessions will also be available for purchase.

“The Cove park is going to be a unique facility for the area. There will be programming, entertainment, and events for all ages,” said Little Elm Recreation Center Manager Jason Peebles.
