Updated September 21, 2020, 11:28 am
This is a LIVE UPDATE for the status of Parks and Recreation facilities and events surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The City of Grapevine Parks and Recreation department views the health and safety of our patrons, staff and guests as our top priority.
