At their special meeting on Nov. 14, the Bryan City Council approved a ground lease to SMBG Bryan, LLC to construct a multiuse recreation and entertainment facility on 5.6 acres in Travis Bryan Midtown Park along the southwest shore of Midtown Lake near the intersection of West Villa Maria Road and South College Avenue.

The project will include at least 24 bowling lanes, six pickleball courts (four that are indoors), an outdoor amphitheater, an arcade, movie theater rooms, premium food and beverage services, and other recreation amenities.

“This partnership will support the overall vision and mission of Midtown Park, generate positive economic impacts, and boost the city as a sports tourism destination” said Mayor Andrew Nelson.

At full operations, the minimum annual city revenue would be $443,560, not including indirect economic impact. The revenues will offset the city’s cost in providing utilities to the site, interior road access, public parking lot, and a public boardwalk.

“We’re excited to build a state-of-the art facility to complement the already great amenities at Midtown Park, and to provide a unique recreation and entertainment venue for citizens and visitors” said SMBG owner Mark Schulman.

The facility is expected to open by Sept. 1, 2024.
