Rockin’ Facilities If there’s a game to be played, Old Settlers Park has a place to play it. Right now, this vast, 570-acre park hosts teams from around the block and from around the country on 20 lighted baseball fields, five lighted softball fields, two lighted football fields, 12 lighted tennis courts, two sand volleyball courts, and five regular-size, two small-size, and 12 half-size soccer fields.

And this year, major renovations took place to make Round Rock even more accommodating to its players. Improvements were made to Champion Fields which included the ball fields, dugouts and spectator areas of the existing 20-field youth baseball and softball complexes. New practice areas and a new five-field complex for softball (complete with concession, hitting area and covered seating) were constructed, too. Take a time-out and see these fields of dreams for yourself.

Rockin’ Facilities Cont... Dell Diamond

Catch a Game at The Dell Diamond

Seeing a game in person at The Dell Diamond puts HD television broadcasts to shame. The home of the Triple-A affiliate of the Houston Astros, the Round Rock Express, is designed to allow amazing close-up views of the action and features numerous amenities for fan comfort and enjoyment (yes, including those delicious hot dogs and nachos). So, whether you’re here to see The Express or to see an amateur sporting event, you’re sure to be entertained from the first inning through overtime. Got a big game? We’ve got room at the 55,000-square-foot Clay Madsen Recreational Center. This unique facility has two full-size gymnasiums for basketball, volleyball or other indoor events. The facility also houses a six-lane, 25-yard lap pool, four racquetball courts and a cardio/weight room. And right behind the recreational center, we’ve even added the Round Rock Skate Park, a 14,000- square-foot skate park that includes a bowl and street component where you can kickflip and ollie to your heart’s content. There are many camps, clinics and tournaments hosted at the center year-round so there’s always a game going on, regardless of the season. Soccer and football fanatics especially enjoy the RRISD Athletic Complex’s special features, including the AstroPlay synthetic turf that has a uniform, shock-reducing thin elastic layer beneath the playing surface. The complex has a state-of-the-art JumboTron and seating capacity for 11,000. The size, comfort, and parking availability of this facility make it attractive for playoff games, tournaments, band competitions, and other events. Dragon Stadium is also a close-by option with its regulation football field and track and seating capacity for 8,800. Round Rock
