This is the old water tower that has been at the park for decades. Between the Soak City water park, the Hotel Breakers, the Sandcastle Suites Hotel, the Lighthouse Point cottages and cabins, and over 3 million guests in the park each year, the peninsula must go through massive amounts of water.
In June 2014, a 16-inch water main supplying water from the mainland to the CP peninsula broke. It forced the park to close for several days. In 2016, a new tower was built that allows the park to store 750,000 gallons of water. I am not sure if the tower is used to store water now that the new one is up, but seeing as it houses a ton of radio and cell phone antennas, it will probably stay standing.
