FireHouse Gastro Park - Now Open!

The retired Fire Station No. 1, at 321 Main St., received a face lift in 2019. As part of a revitalization project in downtown Grand Prairie, City Council approved a 5-year tenant lease with FireHouse Gastro Park LLC to restore the old Fire House into a restaurant and bar.

The owners of FHGP redeveloped the retired Fire Station #1 into a California inspired eatery. Elements of the old fire station are preserved inside the building, including bay doors that can open and close. FHGP also features a coffee lounge, a spacious outdoor seating area with games and an outdoor stage.

The restaurant serves artisanal foods using local ingredients and has beer and handcrafted cocktails for lunch and dinner.

City Hall Civic Center Project

Several years ago City leaders made a commitment to keep City Hall downtown. A new connector building is being planned that will connect the existing City Hall and the Development Center under one roof. Amenities include a “plaza” that will contain a Grand Lawn and Grand Paseo. These areas will allow for green spaces that may be utilized for events and daily outdoor activities so employees, visitors, and the community can enjoy a park-like setting on Main Street. The campus improvements will help provide a cohesiveness not only to the city buildings but to downtown.

Unified Development Code 

Staff is consistently reviewing the Unified Development Code, a guide for development within the city, to allow for establishments to open and operate under more inviting categories for Downtown.
