WATCH: Epic Construction Update
Construction is moving full speed ahead at Grand Central, Grand Prairie's mega recreation site on the west side of State Highway 161 between Arkansas Lane and Warrior Trail. After 10 months of work, buildings are out of the ground on the 172-acre site.
At The Epic recreation center, two levels are finished with the next one coming soon. Next door, the water park is going vertical with the support beams and plumbing being put into place. So far, the project is on schedule.
About Grand Central: The project is based on $75 million collected through a 1/4 cent sales tax passed by voters in May 2014. In addition to The EPIC, which will be a multi-functional facility, the project includes a large aquatic center, a playground for children of all abilities, an amphitheater that will host concerts throughout the year, and additional trails. An estimated opening date is November 2017.
