Water Safety at Grapevine Lake

The Corps of Engineers and the Grapevine Lake staff is committed to providing the public with education concerning boating and water safety. Grapevine Lake Rangers are available for water safety presentations from October to April. Programs are available for all school groups ages K-12 as well as community and non-profit groups of all ages. For more information on programs and free educational materials please contact the Grapevine Lake Project Office at 817-865-2600 and ask to speak with the water safety coordinator. We ask that you provide your requests for programs at least six weeks in advance to ensure staff availability.
