Request for Proposal

Holiday Inn Express Hilton Head Land Use Project

For many years Water Fun Park was a popular recreational facility frequented by Island residents and visitors alike. After being shuttered several years ago, it was demolished this past summer. Now affectionately nicknamed The Old Water Park, the South End's most coveted piece of property awaits a redevelopment opportunity. We are seeking a partner with aligned interests to activate the space in 2021.


  •   1.5 acres
  •   Resort Development Zone
  •   Open natural spaces allowing design flexibility
  •   Adjacent to new Lowcountry Celebration Park
  •   Close to Coligny Beach
  •   Utilities available through Palmetto Electric
  •   South Forest Beach Property Owners Association
  •   Accessible from South Forest Beach Drive and Nassau Street

Conceptual Vision

To maintain the design integrity of our resort community while producing positive economic impact.

To complement the resort experience for guests of Holiday Inn Express.

To develop an innovative concept that draws visitors and locals alike to foster year-round usage, to make memories and to maximize profit.

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

While certainly not the only possible use, a creative Food & Beverage concept with entertainment and retail sales seems like a natural for the redevelopment of The Old Water Park.
