New restaurants coming soon to Round Rock
Round Rock’s food scene continues to grow, with several exciting announcements about upcoming restaurant openings. Shop the Rock, Round Rock's shop local campaign, has compiled a roundup of a few eateries that have indicated their plans to open here.

Round Rock seeks volunteers for cleanup
The City of Round Rock is seeking volunteers for its next directed neighborhood cleanup on Oct. 22 in the neighborhoods of Egger Acres, Mesa Village and Mesa Ridge. Residents in need can also apply for assistance with yard work.

The Water Spot: Don't rock your landscape
Excessive heat and a severe lack of rain have taken a toll on many Central Texas landscapes, particularly those laden with lush lawns. Rocks may seem like a great alternative, but that's not always the case! While flagstone and paver patios are good components of an ideal landscape, entire yards or beds of river rock and gravel don’t make sense.

Places in Time: The Immortal Ten bridge
The South Mays Street bridge leading into Downtown Round Rock commemorates a tragic bus crash that killed 10 basketball players, coaches and fans from Baylor University who were traveling to Austin for a game. Check out our latest video in a series about the history of significant places in Round Rock.

Help solve crimes with your security camera
Help the Round Rock Police Department fight crime in our neighborhoods. By registering your home security camera with RRPD, detectives know who to contact for potential video evidence when a crime occurs, which speeds up the investigation process and increases the chance of solving a crime.

Are you polluting without knowing?
It's raining, it's pouring, but where's all that water going? The City of Round Rock is asking residents to take a quick survey to determine where to focus public outreach efforts regarding stormwater. You’ll get to test your knowledge and learn more about protecting our local bodies of water.

There are plenty of chances to rock your Halloween spirit at City of Round Rock's family-friendly, spook-tacular events hosted throughout the month of October!
