In an effort to keep summer business with the Marlins’ move to a new
stadium in Little Havana
, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is looking to
turn a 40-acre parking lot next to Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens
into a water park. The park could open in spring 2012, the same time the
new Marlins park is scheduled to open. The park, which would include
private cabanas and a “swim with the fish” pool, would be the first
major attraction of its kind in South Florida since Jungle Island opened
in 2003. [Miami
