City offers range of virtual programs

Departments provide online programming to keep mind, body healthy at home

Multiple City departments and facilities, including Round Rock Parks and Recreation, the Round Rock Public Library and the Round Rock Sports Center, are offering virtual programming as COVID-19 has prompted the physical closure of many City buildings to the public and the cancellations of countless events.

All virtual programming provided by the City is streamed and/or posted to department-specific Facebook pages or held via video conferencing technology.
