The REC of Grapevine is a crown jewel of the Grapevine Parks and Recreation Department. This multi-generational recreation facility offers tons of youth programs, a variety of fitness classes and more.
Our award-winning Botanical Gardens are a wonderful place to spend time with your family or take a peaceful stroll and unwind after a busy day. The gardens’ colors and ambiance change with every season so there is always something new to see and enjoy. Of course, the gardens are a wonderful place for romance – whether you’re proposing, taking engagement photos, or getting married – but they also provide wonderful backdrops for family photos, senior portraits, and other picture-worthy moments. For those who would like to learn about gardening and nature, we also offer docent-led tours, school field trips, and horticultural classes at our greenhouse. Never overwhelming, always inspiring, you never know what you’ll discover when you visit the Botanical Gardens!
