Looks like McDonald's is opening up a new location north of town.


Just kidding, folks! What's actually just opened, though, is the new Old MacDonald's Farm & Petting Zoo. It's up north in boonieland on FM 1264 and the whole family can come on over for animals and fun. They've even got a Facebook page up and running in case you want to follow them. The farm is west of the Monsanto cotton plant and north of FM 1294, and southwest of New Deal.

Joyland Amusement Park has new owners now. They were rumored to be closing down for good, but current ownership has actually found a couple of local couples who are willing to keep this park going for 2023 and beyond. That's good news!

For the first time since 2009, Lubbock passed a street bond. This is humongous for both the city and the area. Included in this bond is the long-awaited paving of dirt roads in North and East Lubbock so residents will not have to drive in mud after a rain shower. And several side streets will see rebuilding or expansion. Milwaukee Avenue will be widened from 4th through just past Erskine. Upland Avenue is getting extensive makeovers from 50th all the way up to 4th. That's huge! 114th Street will be upgraded in two places. 82nd Street is finally getting its southeast side expansion east of I-27, going over to MLK. And we're going to see the first tinkering with 146th Street way down south around Quaker. Great stuff happening! And it helps the residents actually had 68 percent of the YES vote in this one.

Here's a link with all the details: https://ci.lubbock.tx.us/pages/publi...-bond-election

Default New Water Park By 2025?

Lubbock followers, here's something that may open some eyes. Thirty acres of land have been looked at by an area developer who wants to build a new water park in West Lubbock. The name of the place, for now, is Aqua Cabana. It will bear no relation to Texas Water Rampage.

https://www.everythinglubbock.com/ne...-social-media/

It has a Facebook site for reference. The expected open date likely will be around 2025. Here's the bigger picture if this happens (Right now, only in discussion phases); it is going to be built near State Loop 88 West and 19th Street. This may bode very well for future development of that area plus the highway itself, and that would be big.

Default Aquarium News (It's About Time!!!)

We may actually see some new progress at the Lubbock Aquarium. A new project on this site has just been announced.

https://www.kcbd.com/2023/04/13/lubb...=organicclicks

It's going to be called the Discovery Trail.

Yeah, I actually admire the CEO being honest and saying upfront that it would take time to fundraise and plan for this project, pointing to how long it took Buddy Holly Hall off the ground (there was an early-2000’s vote that failed, which led to a private campaign that took a dozen years or so). Can’t find the article.

Looks like Big Chicken Shaq is coming to Milwaukee Ave. in SW Lubbock. It’s owned by Shaquille O’Neal, who made an appearance DJ’ing before a Tech football game a few years ago. Could be the third location in the state, and the first in the northern half:

Good for Shaq, shoe. More chicken coming into what will soon be a crowded fast chicken market in the Hub City, what with the likes of Layne's Chicken Fingers also trying to make inroads with Raising Cane's, Slim Chickens, and Chick-Fil-A firmly entrenched in Lubbock's confines.

Now if someone can get some seafood prowess to come on in and fill the void left by the closing of Shrimp Galley a few moons ago....
