Grapevine City Council OK's Stand Rock Resort

Grapevine Okays Second Water Park Resort

Water parks are popping up all over. And they are no longer just overgrown swimming pools with a few slides. They are full-on destination resorts. Towns like Maricopa, Arizona, and Webster, Texas have recently announced they will be the site of expansive water parks. And now, the Grapevine City Council has approved zoning for an entertainment and attraction area for the Stand Rock Resort and Water Park. The resort will have 661 rooms, a 95,000-square-foot indoor water park and a 2-acre outdoor water park. 166 units will be timeshare units.

There is already a Great Wolf Resorts in Grapevine, but Stand Rock’s Stuart Zadra is not worried. “We play well together because kids love water,” he said.

The 12-story resort will include 24,359 square feet dedicated to meeting space, and 65,000 square feet will be for entertainment use, including an arcade. 400-450 employees will be needed to staff the resort and water park. The project will break ground in late spring or early summer of 2023 with a projected opening of 2025.
