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.
The Bessie Mitchell House has been renovated to meet your meeting and event needs. The facility now boasts a large kitchen, perfect for catering, with the ability to serve the meeting room as well as the new outdoor patio. The facility was designed for both family and corporate functions and can serve up to 80 people. The large, upgraded windows allow for a lot of natural light and significant views of the Botanical Gardens. The new outdoor patio will allow for outdoor seating and meeting space to enjoy the sights and sounds of the gardens.
