In Round Rock, city pools are expected to reopen this summer, although at a later date than usual, Sara Bustilloz, Round Rock’s assistant director of communications and marketing, confirmed in an April 29 email. Bustilloz added city staff will maintain lower attendances than occupancy rates allow as well as adjust seating arrangements to promote social distancing and enhance its sanitation protocol.
As it stands, Rock’N River Water Park is still anticipated to open Memorial Day weekend, Bustilloz said. City staff will continually monitor the pandemic to help ensure the opening date is appropriate, she added. Rock’N River’s season pass holder event, originally scheduled for May 16, has also been postponed to a later date, which will be announced on the city’s website.
