To our valued Summit Members,

As the Covid-19 numbers continue to rise across the country, the State of Texas, and in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, it has been determined that The Summit 50+ Club will remain closed through the remainder of the summer. We will re-evaluate a tentative fall opening. This extremely tough decision has been made after much consideration and debate.

But, from the bottom of our hearts, we want you to know…

We hear the pleads to reopen. We know that many of you are ready to come back. We know and appreciate that The Summit is a “home away from home” for many. And we know that having social, recreational, and fitness opportunities is important on so many levels. Believe us – staff is just as ready to see you as you are ready to return. We look forward to the day that we can re-open the doors, see each of you face-to-face, and once again provide in-person events and activities.

Please know that our City leadership and elected officials are aware of all these things as well, and are taking each and every factor into consideration when these decisions are being made for the overall safety of our citizens.

We appreciate your understanding and will continue to keep you informed as more information becomes available.


The Grand Prairie Parks and Recreation Department opened the doors to the newest addition to the city, The Summit, on June 18, 2010. The $23 million dollar, 60,000 square foot facility located in Central Park is designed specifically for active adults ages 50 and older.

With state-of-the art fitness areas, gym, indoor infinity edge pool with lap lanes & exercise vortex, theater, locker rooms with sauna and more, this will be the talk of Texas for years to come!

“The 50 plus generation migrate to places that have amenities. The Summit will help Grand Prairie enhance its tax base.”

Dr. John CromptonDistinguished Professor on Parks, Recreation and Tourism Texas A&M University

“The facility evokes a WOW reaction! Bravo!”

Dr. John CollinsProfessor of Recreation and Leisure Studies, University of North Texas

“The Summit is an amazing facility which will be a model for cities across America.”

Phil T. HesterChairman of the NRPA Gold Medal Awards & Director of Parks, Recreation and Marine Long Beach, California

“Abraham Lincoln is reported to have said, 'It's not the years in your life but the life in your years.' And just think The Summit empowers the 50+ residents of Grand Prairie to have both. It's just about as 'grand' as it gets.”

Dr. Ellen O'SullivanPh.D., Certified Parks and Recreation Professional President of Leisure Lifestyle Consulting
