The ultimate purpose of the center is to fill a need not previously met in the community – creating a one-of-a-kind venue unmatched anywhere nearby and increasing tourism spending in Bryan. But the facility also is available to local residents. City staff anticipate designating times for residents to use the facility, and that the party rooms and flex space will be heavily used by Bryan residents.

The facility is located on the northwest side of the lake, further to the northern edge of the park. The facility held its grand opening on Dec. 10, 2022.

The facility is owned by the City of Bryan and managed by Sports Facilities Companies, Inc.
