A pirate of the high seas, Adventure Pete was following a treasure map that took him deep into the Big Country. Here is where he discovered an oasis abundant in treasure. Pete, along with an assembly of close friends, quickly settled into a life of fun in the sun at Adventure Cove with the quest to share their treasure with the citizens of Abilene.

At Adventure Cove, families will get to enjoy a leisure pool with a zero-depth beach entry, a lazy river, a pair of water slides, a covered patio, and a new bathhouse. The facility has been designed with the future in mind, providing space to eventually add features and expand the lazy river.
