It’s a name that sounds sort of like EPCOT doesn’t it? Or maybe a little like Westcot? They hope there will be shopping, dining, a theme park and an aquarium. They hope it will bring the locals and the tourists alike to Garden Grove California! They hope it will put the city on the map. They hope it will bolster the economy. They hope it will make it off the drawing board.

It seems that after 51 years of its more famous neighbor grabbing all the lime light and profits, Garden Grove wants a theme park of its own. The city has figured out where they want the park to be (hopefully just south of the 22 freeway off of Harbor Blvd), they have also figured out how to pay for it, but they haven’t yet figured out what the park will be. Believe it or not MGM rumors have been circulating. Seriously? Did you witness the catastrophe that was the MGM Grand Adventure in Las Vegas? No? Don’t worry, neither did anyone else.

Do you think Garden Grove will ever see its theme park come to fruition? Will this be yet another in long line of famous follies the city has had to endure in its efforts for success? If I were a betting man, I would bet all my quatloos that this proposal will go the way of the recent Casino project. It looks like you’ll have to place those bets at Pechanga because the city rejected the Casino project and there won’t be any gambling in Garden Grove any time soon.
