SAINT MARK — Following an extended closure to repair flood damage, the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E Hopkins Street, will reopen for community use on Monday, May 2, 2022. 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.”
New plasterboard, tiles, carpeting, flooring and doors have been installed throughout the facility, and the electrics 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, which have been suspended since the closure in October, will resume on May 2. Automatic payments will be drafted starting June 1. Hours of operation include:
|Monday Thursday||6:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. (pool closes at 8:30 p.m.)|
|Friday||6:00 a.m. – 7:00 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.
The San Marcos Activity Center opened to the public in 1997 following a $5.3 million bond election that passed in 1994. The facility celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017 and a renovation project recently updated changing rooms, restrooms and carpeting.
