Management team members of Grand Prairie’s Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark recently donned hard hats and tool belts to build a brand new three-bedroom home in support of Trinity Habitat for Humanity.
During the all-day build, which took place in the Como neighborhood of west Fort Worth, Epic Waters volunteers were asked to construct a 1,150-square-foot residence, which will be a home for a deserving family.
Epic Waters is an 80,000-square-foot, indoor/outdoor, retractable-roof waterpark that will offer daily, year-round admission when the park opens soon. Billed as a “cruise ship on land,” the park features attractions for every member of the family and for groups large and small, including waterslides, private event areas and more.
