The all NEW Joanne Land Playground in Old Settlers Park is NOW OPEN! The Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department was fortunate to partner with Miracle Recreation Equipment Company to install this first-of-its-kind equipment. The new playground includes a new Gravity Rail where kids can climb on a swing that glides along a track speeds to a downward slope, curves up a hill that carries kids up, then down again. Inspired by the excitement of ziplines and roller coasters, Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department is proud to bring the “Thrill” back in play with the new Gravity Rail. The park also features huge climbing towers that include obstacles, slides, tunnels and more! Come on out and enjoy this amazing new addition!
Round Rock’s Old Settlers Park is the City’s crown jewel of the park system and is a well-known sports destination in the youth and amateur sports leagues. The park’s 645 acres provides ample space for several recreational pursuits such as disc golf, cricket, 20-field baseball complex, 5-field softball complex, soccer facilities, and more. Old Settlers Park is also a place to congregate outside, barbeque and have a game of horseshoes at one of the two pavilions.
