Lusaka’s abandoned water park

I was out cycling the other day and found this place. I don’t know why or when this water park was abandoned. It’s situated on Leopard’s Hill outside Lusaka. The water slides and the structures around them seems to be robustly built, maybe it would still be possible to restore the park. The bush is taking over and it’s easy to miss the place unless you know exactly where you’re going. I found the last picture in the gallery online, it shows the place when it was still open.

I put all photos from the abandoned places I find here: http://www.adamphotography.se/Projects/Abandoned-places

  1. Adventure City closed down a few years ago. It is now a conference/events venue. The slides as you can see have been shut down. There also used to be numerous swimming pools with fake rocks to jump off and bridges. An indoor playground, trampolines and soccer field. I think eventually the enterprise was not making enough money. Entry was K15, but in addition to that here are the numerous drownings of kids getting in after hours. I imagine the property sold for a very large sum.
