The San Marcos Activity Center is scheduled to reopen for community use on Monday, May 2.
The activity center unexpectedly closed on October 29, 2021, after a pipe failure caused several inches of water to cover the facility.
“We are thrilled to welcome our members and guests back to the San Marcos Activity Center,” said Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Jamie Lee Case. “We appreciate everyone’s patience as we worked to rebuild our building.”
The San Marcos Activity Center opened to the public in 1997 following a $5.3 million bond election that passed in 1994.
The property celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017, and a renovation project recently updated the locker rooms, restrooms, and carpeting.
Several renovations and repairs have been made to the facility including new drywall, tile, carpeting, hardwood floors and doors have been installed throughout the center and electrical and plumbing have been restored.
The City of San Marcos was responsible for an initial $2,500 in deductible costs, while the total cost of the repair project was $2.5 million. The Texas Municipal League intergovernmental risk pool is still evaluating the cause of the pipe failure.
Memberships, suspended since the closure in October, will resume on May 2. Automatic payments will be drafted starting Wednesday, June 1.
Hours of operation include:
Monday – Thursday: 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. (pool closes at 8:30 p.m.) Friday: 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
In-person Total Wellness classes will resume at the Activity Center upon reopening, but virtual class options will still be available. For a full schedule and group fitness class options, visit totalwellness-sanmarcos.com.
