If you want a water park back at Ontario Place, don't bet on it.

The province doesn't seem too keen to repeat what's been done in the past.

The provincial land is in the process of getting a facelift but a state-of-the art water-park with retractable roof isn't being discussed in the first phase of the revitalization.

Tourism Minister Michael Chan says the last water park at Ontario Place had dwindling popularity, underlining the complexe lost $20 million a year.

After Question Period, Chan revealed ministry officials handled the talks with the developer and he knew very little about this proposal. After being briefed later in the day, he said he liked the proposal but for another area of the GTA.

He underlines he is all for new attractions in the region, pointing to the success of Ripley's Aquarium.

Toronto-area (Trinity-Spadina) NDP MPP Rosario Marchese says families flocked to the Ontario Place water park when the province was investing money into it.

Marchese says he thinks this proposal is a good idea and should really be considered.

The first phase of the revitalization includes a water-front trail and park.
