The Grand Prairie Parks, Arts and Recreation Department opened the doors to The Summit, on May 24, 2010. The $23 million-dollar, 60,000 square foot facility located in Epic Central is designed specifically for active adults ages 50 and older.

The Summit is known for being a home away from home for our 50+ active adults.  The Summit’s state-of-the art fitness areas, opportunities for involvement, and the smiling faces of the Summit Staff ensure that our members will find their niche here.

In the event of inclement weather, holiday hours, or other facility closures, updates will be listed on the Grand Prairie Parks, Arts and Recreation Department homepage linked below.
