The City of Round Rock is hosting a series of open houses in February for input on the Parks and Recreation Department's Strategic Master Plan which sets priorities for parks and recreation programs and facilities for the next 5-10 years.
During the open houses, attendees will get an overview of the parks and recreation programs and amenities in Round Rock and receive the opportunity to provide input on amenities for city parks and programming. In a short survey, attendees will indicate if they want more trails in Round Rock, a BMX park, nature preserves, art and cultural centers, among many other possibilities.
"Now is a crucial time for us to obtain citizen feedback because we are planning the direction for the parks and recreation department for the next several years," Parks and Recreation Director Rick Atkins said. "We need that input to ensure we're adding parks and amenities that our customers desire."
Open houses begin on Wednesday, Feb. 6 and continue on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the month of February at various City facilities and schools.
All open houses are from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
• Tuesday, Feb. 19 Old Town Elementary 2200 Chaparral *6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The project began with a phone survey to 400 households in November and individual discussions with Round Rock City Council members about parks and recreation issues. In addition, the project will include focus group meetings with homeowner associations and citizen groups.
