EpicCentral Updates

By | Epic Extras

Have you heard the exciting news about EpicCentral ? A new restaurant is coming to the park along with additional parking lots and a new entrance off the Hwy 161 frontage road. Construction has already begun and is currently anticipated to take 18-24 months to complete. Visitors to the park should note that the park entrance off of the Hwy 161 frontage road has been closed as well as a section of Esplanade. More details on the project will be announced soon!

Other EpicCentral updates:
The Summit 50+ Club and PlayGrand Adventures remain closed for now due to the pandemic, however City staff will be reevaluating the decision in the Fall to reopen as soon and safely as possible. Rest assured, we understand the importance of these two life-changing facilities, and look forward to their many, many more years of service to our community.

Prevent the spread of COVID-19

By | Epic Extras

Local Summary

The City of Grand Prairie continues to work with the Dallas County Health Department, Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in containing the spread of the virus through public education and identifying mitigation strategies.

How can I avoid infection with COVID-19?

The best way to prevent infection is to take precautions to avoid exposure to this virus. These are exactly the same precautions you would take to avoid coming down with a cold or the flu.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
