You are invited Oct. 17!

By | Epic Extras

As mayor of Grand Prairie, it’s with great excitement that I invite you to the EPIC Grandbreaking event on Saturday, Oct. 17. Gather your family and friends to spend an evening at Central Park – the site where we are breaking ground on the EPIC project.

Our award winning Parks, Arts & Recreation Department presents a night of free entertainment followed by a fireworks show. Max Baca & Los Texmaniacs, Rick Trevino and Joe Ely will perform 7-9 p.m. followed by an EPIC short film and groundbreaking ceremony. Fireworks will light up the sky at 9:15 p.m. Food and beverages will be available to purchase all evening. This is going to be a fun night for our community.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Mayor Ron Jensen

And we’re off!

Just over a month ago, Grand Prairie voters passed the referendum to design and build the new recreation center, water park, library, amphitheater (and more) at Central Park. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I’m proud to say your city staff and elected officials are already working hard on the planning process. And it’s going to be Epic.

Public input meetings will be coming soon, so get ready to share your ideas. We began the process with citizen input years ago when the city developed the Parks Master Plan, and we want you, as residents of Grand Prairie, to continue to be involved as we finally get down to the fun details.

Let us know your questions and suggestions. Our award-winning Parks, Arts and Recreation Department will be keeping everyone in the loop throughout the process.
