- San Antonio summer landmark Splashtown may soon be demolished to make way for a car dealership.
On Thursday, city council approved a zoning change that would allow for Cavender Auto Family to build a dealership on the waterpark property. Owner Bobby Cavender told council Splashtown's owner “has decided to retire” and sell the location.
The dealership group plans to construct a Ford dealership on the property, Cavender said.
Splashtown opened for business in 1985 and shut down following its 2021 season on September 12, according to KSAT.
