"Life is Grand" is a quarterly newsletter that presents information on city news, events and a guide for Parks and Recreation classes and activities.

The city of Grand Prairie’s quarterly magazine, Life is Grand, is available online and at various city facilities around town. Life is Grand contains the parks and recreation class guide and special events, as well as city news. Formerly mailed to each household in Grand Prairie, the magazine has gone digital, with a limited number of printed copies available in recreation centers and other city offices, as a money saving measure.
