The city of Round Rock announced June 15 it is working with a company to bring a destination hotel, conference center and water park to the city in a move that city leaders are saying could turn Round Rock into a tourist destination.

The Round Rock location will feature up to 1,000 guest rooms, indoor and outdoor water parks, and a convention center. The development will also include additional entertainment, recreation and other mixed uses on 334 acres on Hwy. 79 across from the Dell Diamond and Old Settlers Park, according to city documents.

City officials said they are working on a memorandum of understanding that will include a clause to start construction within 36 months, and they estimate construction to last approximately two years.The economic impact will start right when the business starts construction, by hiring hundreds of construction workers.

The resort is expected to create approximately 700 full-time and part-time jobs, and the business will invest at least $250 million in the project.Once complete, the Pocono Mountains location will feature a 200,000-square-foot indoor water park, six restaurants, and 100,000 square feet of convention space.
