Offerings and Perceptions of Grand Prairie, TX

Goals

To gain a better understanding of what the city of Grand Prairie, Texas offers people and what are their perceptions about it.

Early Findings

  • The City of Grand Prairie's website lists several attractions and features to help position the city. Grand Prairie is sold as conveniently located between the major metropolitan areas of Dallas and Ft. Worth, but it also boasts its own offerings.
  • The area offers a wide range of activities for all ages.
  • Both indoor and outdoor activities are featured.
  • Some key unique offerings for Grand Prairie are the baseball team AirHogs, Ripley's Believe It or Not museum, a skate park, a year-round water park, year-round horse racing, seasonal farmer's markets, a holiday drive-through light display and extensive parks and outdoor recreation areas.
  • Finding perceptions of Grand Prairie was a little trickier, as most 'review' type websites and articles focus on living quality instead of broader perceptions regarding visitors and residents.
  • Some key comments about Grand Prairie are about its "small town country feel" yet still boasting lots to do. Many people enjoy its close proximity to large cities for those attractions. It is seen as safe, diverse and friendly.
  • One review recommends Grand Prairie is very good for families.
