Abstract: This study assessed if the construction and development of a

waterpark resort at the previous Agoo Eco-Fun World in Agoo, La Union

is feasible. In the market study, the demand for waterpark resorts

exceeded the current supply in La Union, establishing for the need of the

proposed project. In the technical study, the facilities included within the

proposed waterpark resort are administrative building, restaurant, four-

story hotel, and pools were designed in accordance to the National

Building Code of the Philippines 1977 and the National Structural Code

of the Philippines 2010. The project and materials costs were reflected

v
from DOLE and other reliable sources. The financial study showed that

the project has a highly feasible rate of return with the initial years

generating reasonably low income, with the assets outweighing the

liabilities. The socio-economic study evaluated the effective net

contribution and improvement of the standard way of living in the locale

considering its community development and socio-economic welfare.

SYNOPSIS OF THE PROJECT

I. Project Title

Since more and more people desire to gain a lot of play time over a

short period of time, an establishment must be built to meet their

demands. A waterpark resort, a recreation and entertainment-based

resort that provided lodging and waterpark features, can then effectively

accommodate a large number of people at an affordable cost.

II. Project Location

The proposed project is located at the previous Agoo Eco-Fun

World in the municipality of Agoo, La Union.

III. Project Proponent

The project is a joint venture by the Local Government Unit of the

Municipality of Agoo, La Union and the Tourism Infrastructure and

Enterprise Zone Authority headed by Stefanie An Young Eriguel,

Municipal Mayor, and Atty. Guiller B. Asido, Chief Operating Officer.

IV. Project Description

The project shall consist of two parts:

Site Development. This includes the construction of auxiliary and

ancillary facilities such as fence, road network, drainage system,

electrical and water supply.

vii
Construction. This includes the construction of the dwelling units

and main building.

V. Technical Description

Provisions for the development and construction of the waterpark

resort were based on the National Structural Code of the Philippines and

similar standards set by the Department of Public Works and Highways,

the Metro San Fernando Water District, and the La Union Electrical

Company.

VI. Nature of Funding and Planning Scheme

The funding of the proposed waterpark resort shall be taken from

the budget of the Municipality of Agooand Tourism Infrastructure

and Enterprise Zone Authority. Funding will cover planning,

construction, and maintenance.

VII. Socio-Economic and Environmental Impact

The development of the waterpark resort will utilize local

manpower from the municipal of Agoo, La Union and nearby

municipalities from the initial construction to the actual operation. Thus,

the waterpark resort will provide greater opportunity to the people of La

Union.

Moreover, since the waterpark resort will be the closest waterpark

resort from municipalities and cities northern of Agoo, it will attract

viii
greater travelling population; subsequently giving more opportunities for

other establishments in Ago. A large number of consumers can then

mean a healthy source of revenue for both the people and the municipal.

Besides from the promising economic growth, the construction of

the waterpark resort can also propel the administration of Agoo to better

beautify its location.

VIII. Objectives and Significance of the Project

The construction of the waterpark resorts aims:

1. To construct an establishment that meets the demands of the

people in the most safe and economic design possible;

2. To provide relaxation and entertainment schemes without

compromising their safety and comfort;

3. To provide greater play time over a short period of time;

4. To boost the tourism of La Union, specifically of Agoo;

5. To encourage further development in the socio-economic and

environmental endeavors of the municipality of Agoo; and

6. To provide employment opportunities for the people of Agoo and

nearby cities and municipalities.
