WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) - Florida's newest theme park is opening a water park in time for summer 2012.
    
Legoland Florida in Winter Haven is renovating and reopening a water park adjacent to the attraction that goes back its days as Cypress Gardens. General manager Adrian Jones said Tuesday that it will be open by summer.
    
The water park will include a wave pool, Lego-themed raft ride, tube slides, body slides and an interactive water-play structure for younger children.
    
Legoland Florida opened in October on the site of the old Cypress Gardens, which was one of Florida's first theme parks. It's geared toward children 2 to 12.
