Commercial center to bring restaurant, retail, fuel stations, car wash to Northwest Highway and Texan Trail in Grapevine

The east side of Grapevine could have some more produce and grocery options in the near future.

On Aug. 21 the Grapevine City Council together with the Planning and Zoning Commission approved a conditional-use permit for a planned commercial center that would include a gas station, a car wash, dining with outdoor seating called Texas Best Smokehouse, and a section for produce and groceries.

The project will be developed by Victron Energy. Its vice president, Mohammad Sharaf, said in a letter to the council that no two Victron stores are alike, and the family business model allows each facility to be customized to the market.

Want some ax-throwing with your burger? Check out this new Grapevine gaming hangout

Ax-throwing is trendy, escape rooms are hot, and Fort Worth has a bar with a pinball theme. Now there’s a Grapevine place that is putting all that and more under one roof.

Corky’s Gaming Bistro announced via press release Friday morning that it has opened in Grapevine. There’s a restaurant/bar side to it, but the draw is going to be the games: 78 classic arcade games, a dozen pinball machines, four escape rooms and 10 ax-throwing lanes(definitely a time the phrase “stay in your lane” is appropriate).

Grapevine defines a new vision for Rockledge Park



Miranda Wilcox/Community Impact Newspapers

The Grapevine Parks and Recreation Department is working to transform one of its parks into an area for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels—an estimated $50 million concept officials say is the first of its kind in the U.S.

In June, the Grapevine City Council approved the parks and recreation department’s updated parks master plan, which lays out the vision for Rockledge Park to potentially feature a variety of archery ranges, which would be the primary focus of Rockledge Park, Kevin Mitchell, Grapevine parks and recreation director, said at an Economic Development Partnership meeting in March. Other elements included in the concept plan are shooting ranges, marine activities and a mountain bike skills course, along with educational components.

The park is still conceptual and has not gone through the actual construction design phase, meaning park elements could change. Mitchell said this expansion is planned to be a joint partnership between the city of Grapevine and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the U.S Army Corps of Engineers.
