Aktion Parks, a subsidiary of Correct Craft, broke ground on Elite Cable Park, its third boat and cable park.

Elite Cable Park will be part of the new USA Water Ski Foundation headquarters and training center to be built at the city of Auburndale’s $25 million Lake Myrtle Sports Complex in Auburndale, Fla.

Completion of the park is scheduled for next spring. On 76-acre Lake Myrtle, the park will be staffed with coaches offering lessons in wakeboarding, wakesurfing and other water sports of all skill levels.

Like Aktion’s other parks — the Orlando Watersports Complex and Miami Watersports Complex — Elite Cable Park will provide Hyperlite equipment for all lessons and host events that feature Nautique Boats.

“We are thrilled to begin construction on Elite Cable Park, Aktion Park’s third boat and cable park,” Correct Craft CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement.

“Elite Cable Park will be one of the world’s finest cable parks, and as part of the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex will provide world-class training and fun to wakeboarders from around the globe.”

The ground-breaking ceremony featured representatives from partners that include the USA Water Ski Foundation; Aktion Parks; the city of Auburndale; Polk County; Visit Central Florida; USA Water Ski; Five Star Family Growers; Rodda Construction; JSK Consulting; and renowned water skiers and wakeboarders.
