Round Rock City Council approved a $19 million contract March 14 with John King Construction, Ltd. for the Sports Center expansion project.

In a nutshell

The expansion is expected to add over 25,000 square feet, including two additional basketball courts; four additional volleyball courts; and other amenities such as additional seating, restrooms, concessions and storage. There will also be more parking added for the facility.

The construction company has previously worked on significant city projects, including the Rabb House and Dell Diamond.

Funding comes from the recent 2023 voter-approved bond for public safety; and parks, recreation and sports projects. Construction is expected to be complete in 2025.

“We’re not wasting any time—you said go and we’re going to go,” General Services Director Chad McDowell said during an update on bond projects.
