Plans to construct and open a waterboom recreational park in the Samplangan district of Gianyar appear to be in doubt.

The park and supporting structures located on 1.8 hectare of land now stand half-completed as construction workers abandoned the project when their paychecks stop flowing.

Bali Post reports that an inspection of the Bukit Jati Waterboom Project site on Friday, May 17, 2013, revealed a partially completed two-storey building stood in front of a swimming pool. Two swimming pools, opened to the public and local athletes before the project was commenced, now stand empty and in a state of disrepair.

Local residents say workers employed in building the water recreation site stopped work in February 2013 when they no longer were paid wages for their labors.

The regency government of Gianyar has made no comment on the current status of the Bukit Jati project.

Originally, plans were for the park to become fully operational in December 2012 following a groundbreaking ceremony held on May 4, 2012.

The former regent or Gianyar, Cokorda Artha Ardhana Sukawati officiated at the groundbreaking attended by the CEO of PT Karya Makmur Dewata Group, R.A. Rahardjo.

Karya Makmur Dewata presented itself at the groundbreaking as the developer of the project that promised to provide valuable work opportunities for the surrounding community.

The future of the half-completed project now appears to be very much in doubt. Meanwhile, a public swimming area once enjoyed by the public may prove to be one victim of the failed water park project.
