ARNOLDS PARK, Iowa – A major expansion at Bridges Bay is drawing even more visitors to the Okoboji-area resort that is a partnership of several Sioux Falls businesses.
The Waterfront Event Center opened in late June, bringing two new restaurants and expanded venue space to the resort. Built on the shore of East Okoboji Lake, it is intended to turn the almost decade-old property into a true year-round destination.
“It’s gorgeous,” said Jon Broek of Equity Homes, the project’s builder and designer.
“The actual building itself has turned out a lot better than what we expected. It’s kind of hard to see how beautiful it’s going to end up until you put it right into the bank on the water like that.”
