Progress continues on Downtown parklets
Construction continues on six new parklets along East Main Street from Mays Street to Sheppard Street in Downtown Round Rock. The parklets will include new trees, benches, additional landscaping, lighting elements and expanded walkable space for pedestrians.

Make sure you're counted in the 2020 Census
Round Rock has a higher response rate than the state average with a 63.3 percent self-response rate — and if you haven't already participated, there's still time!

Census data are used to adjust electoral districts and shape how federal money is spent for roads, schools, health clinics, student loans, housing and fire departments.

The 2020 Census marks the first time you have the option to respond online. Everyone living in the United States is required by law to be counted in the 2020 Census.

You will be asked a few simple questions, like age, sex and the number of people who live in your home, including children. Your personal information is confidential and cannot be shared with anyone, including any government agencies or law enforcement. The Census will never ask you for your social security number, money or donations, or credit card numbers.

Mulch Delivery

The City of Round Rock's Parks and Recreation Department continues to deliver free mulch to residents across the city. When your neighborhood is listed on our website, you can call for a free mulch delivery straight to your driveway. You can use the mulch in flower beds, around your trees or anywhere you'd like.
