Gilroy Selected as Potential Location for New Great Wolf Lodge Family Resort

August 30, 2017 (Gilroy, CA): The City of Gilroy, California announced that it has been selected by Great Wolf Resorts Inc. as a potential location for a new Great Wolf Lodge family resort. Representatives from Great Wolf Resorts have been considering several locations in Northern California but recently agreed to enter a 60-day exclusivity period with the City of Gilroy to fully assess the potential of building a resort in Gilroy. During this period, the City and Great Wolf will discuss a potential public-private partnership.  At the same time, Great Wolf will engage in community outreach about the project.

Great Wolf Resorts Inc. is the parent company of Great Wolf Lodge, North America’s largest family of indoor water park resorts. The proposed resort would be located off Highway 152/Hecker Pass, on a parcel of land adjacent to Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park. While project details are still under discussion, the resort would likely follow a similar blueprint as other Great Wolf Lodge resorts, including up to 700 family-friendly suites, a large indoor water park, conference facilities, shops, restaurants, and a variety of other attractions.

Representatives from the City of Gilroy and Great Wolf Resorts will be conducting community outreach programs in the coming weeks to gather feedback from a wide range of residents, community stakeholders, and local organizations.

Roland Velasco, City of Gilroy Mayor, said, “We’re proud that Gilroy has been selected as a potential location for this very popular family resort hotel. In the coming weeks, we will take a close look at the return on investment for the community and ensure that the project will have a positive impact on the quality of life for our residents.”

Bryson Heezen, Director of Development for Great Wolf Resorts, shared, “Great Wolf Lodge is an award-winning family resort destination that embraces time spent together as a family, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime. As we look to expand the Great Wolf Lodge experience to new audiences, we explored several potential locations in Northern California and feel Gilroy could be a great fit for our next resort. We look forward to sharing information about the project with the community and hearing feedback from residents and city leaders during this evaluation period.”
