Providence Park Welcomes Academy Sports + Outdoors

Updated: Sep 8, 2021

BRYAN, Texas — Providence Park is excited to announce the grand opening of the newly constructed Academy Sports + Outdoors, a 72,000 square foot retail space, located at 2351 Earl Rudder Freeway South in College Station, Texas.

“The opening of Academy is a great catalyst for the redevelopment of Providence Park, formerly known as The Science Park at Research Valley,” said Casey Oldham, Chairman and CEO of Oldham Goodwin. “The 54 acre master planned development of Providence Park will bring a new ecosystem of offices, manufacturing, restaurants, and retail space to the Brazos Valley.

The city of College Station’s Economic Development Director, Natalie Ruiz, said the development of Providence Park in the area will create “excellent opportunities in what’s really been an underutilized site for many years.”

The new location, developed by Oldham Goodwin, provides an improved shopping experience, an updated look, and more than doubles the size of the previous facility. Academy Sports + Outdoors has been a Texas tradition for over 75 years and is known for its commitment to being the everyday low-price leader as a premier sports, outdoor, and recreation lifestyle retailer.

“We are honored with the opportunity to partner with Academy Sports + Outdoors on such a successful project,” said Hunter Goodwin, President and COO of Oldham Goodwin. “Oldham Goodwin Development was able to complete the 72,000 square foot construction project in only 5 months and we look forward to partnering with the city of College Station on future projects at Providence Park.”

Providence Park is strategically located in the heart of College Station, directly off of State Highway 6, the most important regional mobility and transportation corridor in the Brazos Valley. The redevelopment of the 54 acre campus, located less than 2 miles from Texas A&M University, will result in a significant increase in employment, property taxes and sales taxes for the City of College Station, CSISD and Brazos County.
