Parks & Recreation

  1. Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz

    September 1, 2022 - September 30, 2022

    Have you ever heard of a BioBlitz? It’s an event where we take and upload photos of wildlife and plants to learn about pollinators in our area. What is a pollinator? Bees, butterflies, wasps, flies, sawflies, moths, hummingbirds, beetles, and some bats are all examples of pollinators. Why should you participate in a pollinator BioBlitz? Pollinators are essential to the health of our ecosystem and require specific plants to provide food and shelter for their offspring. A BioBlitz gives us insight into the health of our ecosystem and engages community scientists like you! The San Marcos Discovery Center is hosting a Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz for San Marcos during the month of September and anyone in our city can participate. You can find plants and pollinators almost anywhere, but most will be where the flowers are. Reminder - don’t forget to document plants – they are a pollinator’s “bread and butter" after all.

  2. Adult Pickleball Open Play

    September 30, 2022, 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM

    San Marcos Activity Center Gym

    Adult Pickleball Open Play is now offered Monday - Friday from 8:30 - 11:30 AM, at the San Marcos Activity Center for ages 18 and up. We have six courts for Pickleball, which has allowed us to designate three courts as competitive courts and three courts as recreation courts. This has helped us accommodate our growing number of advanced and beginner level Pickleball players. Pickleball is a cross between badminton, tennis and ping-pong. It is played on a badminton-sized court 20 ft. by 44 ft. with paddles, a wiffle ball and a net that is lowered to 34 inches. Players volley the ball back and forth to try to score on the opposition. Pickleball is free for Activity Center members. Non-members are charged the daily use rate of $6.00 for adults 18 to 60, $3.00 for ages 60 and above. For more information, call 512.393.8280.
