Formerly know as Blue Collar Country, the development consortium couldn’t pull the string. The property sat idle, while weeds grew for several years. Which was just as well, because, something bigger and better came along.
From the ashes came OWA, a family recreational complex going up in front of my eyes. OWA, is a Native American word meaning “big water.” The big water is a 14 acre lake in the center of the development with bridges leading to main attractions.
Sponsored by the Poarch Creek band of Creek Nation, Phase I of the complex is scheduled to open on or before Memorial Day. Seven days a week, weather permitting, work goes on. Some of the rides–which will total 21, can already be seen.
