There are so many things you can do in a canoe. Explore Lake Ted, fish, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. There are three points to launch from: the floating dock just beyond the Terrace, the blob dock just below the Big Thicket, and the canoe cove on the far side of the lake. After you've enjoyed canoeing, please replace the equipment where you found it. Early mornings are a great time for canoeing as wildlife is abundant at this time. Please be careful and remember that you are using Lake Ted at your own risk..
Lake Ted is our private, spring fed lake. If you enjoy swimming, fishing or canoeing, Lake Ted provides a tranquil, secluded area for these activities. Access to Lake Ted is gained either by a path that heads off of the patio around the Big Thicket or by the steps adjacent to the Herb Garden towards the Terrace. We also have a WATER BLOB, ROPE SWINGS, AND WATER SLIDE..
Zip across our 903 foot long cable which spans the width of Lake Ted. The climb up to the platform from which you jump is just half the fun. This exhilarating ride sheds new light on taking your breath away. Gliding across the beautiful lake is view you can get only from Balcones Springs.
The ropes challenge consists of initiatives, low elements, and high elements specifically designed to encourage group bonding and team building. These activities require staff facilitation and therefore should be pre-arranged through your event coordinator.
We provide trail rides throughout our wilderness property for young and old. This activity requires a staff facilitator and therefore should be pre-arranged through your meeting planner.
We fully recognize that taking employees away from work for any length of time can be very costly
to a company’s productivity. Many companies simply do not have a full day or even a half day to
allot for team building. Because of this, we have developed team building activities that are flexible
enough to fit different lengths of time while still offering worthwhile experiences.
