GRAND PRAIRIE: RELAXATION, FAMILY & FUN
With its 2017 population at 190,682, Grand Prairie is the 15th largest city in Texas and in the top 150 nationwide. It was first established by Alexander McRae Dechman in 1863 and was eventually incorporated as a city in 1909. During World War I and since, Grand Prairie has had a long history with the defense and aviation industry.
Because of its central location and proximity to air and highway transportation infrastructure, today Grand Prairie is a well-established distribution center. Quick access to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, large local markets of Dallas and Fort Worth, rail and interstate highways continue to attract new construction of warehouse, distribution and manufacturing buildings.
Recent industrial, hotel and multifamily development has taken up large tracts in the north Great Southwest Industrial District. The southernmost section of the city, amid hill country-like vistas around Joe Pool Lake, contains high-end residential housing with resort style amenities. With more than 5,000 acres of parks, well-established and new neighborhoods and lively, competitive athletic programs, Grand Prairie makes businesses and residents feel right at home.
