GRAND PRAIRIE - Grand Prairie is getting ready to start construction on a new $75 million water park-anchored development, known as The Epic, to bring a large recreational hub to the city.

The Epic — slated to get underway with a groundbreaking on October 17 —  will anchor the city's Central Park, west of SH 161 and the future extension of Waterwood Dr., with an indoor 70,000-sf water park with a retractable roof and 3.5 acres of outdoor space.

The water park is expected to have one of the longest lazy rivers in the United States after completion.

Ultimately, Grand Prairie will add new rides and slides in future phases of the project.

Grand Prairie is working to bring retail and restaurants to the 19 pad sites adjacent to the development.

Construction on The Epic is slated for completion in April 2017.
