History of the Activity Center

San Marcos voters passed a $5.3 million bond election for the construction of the San Marcos Activity Center in May 1994.

Since opening to the public in 1997, the San Marcos Activity Center has provided a venue for community gatherings, public meetings, youth sports programs, seniors programs, fitness programs and weddings. It has also served as an emergency shelter during disasters for more than three decades.

In 2001, an expansion project added a 2,000 square foot weight room and an 1,800 square foot aerobics room. A line break in October 2021 caused flood damage throughout the facility and led to a reconstruction project that was completed in May 2022.

Total Wellness has been a partner since 2010. Hill Country Karate offers karate lessons and Walker’s Gallery has been a mainstay of the activity center since the doors opened.
