[ARCHIVED] San Marcos Activity Center to Reopen May 2

NF - Activity Center Reopening

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 excited to welcome our members and guests back to the San Marcos Activity Center,” said Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation Jamie Lee Case. “We appreciate everyone’s patience as we worked to reconstruct our building.” 

New sheetrock, tile, carpet, hardwood flooring, and doors were installed throughout the facility and power and plumbing have been restored. The City of San Marcos was responsible for an initial $2,500 in deductible costs, while the entire cost of the repair project totaled $2.5 million. The Texas Municipal League Intergovernmental Risk Pool is still assessing 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 beginning June 1. Hours of operation include: 

  • Monday – Thursday    6 a.m. – 9 p.m. (pool to close at 8:30 p.m.)
  • Friday                          6 a.m. – 7 p.m. 
  • Saturday                      10 a.m. – 5 p.m. 
  • Sunday                        Closed

In-person Total Wellness classes will resume at the Activity Center upon reopening, but virtual class options will still be available. For a complete schedule and group fitness class options visit

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 remodel project recently updated the locker rooms, restrooms, and carpeting.
