40 Years of Fun in the Sun

In 1966, along a stretch of a tree-lined, spring-fed river on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, Bob and Billye Henry and their three children began creating what would eventually become the world’s first water resort and the nation’s most popular summertime waterpark. Since what they were building had never been attempted before, the Henry’s relied on their own vision of combining water fun and resort accommodations into a family destination.
