Grand Prairie is the main city within the northwestern part of the province of Alberta within Western Canada. It is named after the prairie, which was first occupied by the Beaver First Nation bands who began their trade with the North West Company at Dunvegan in the early 1800's. In the year 1910, the Grand Prairie Townsite was sub-divided, and in the year 1912, it included a post office, a hotel, a land office, and a bank. During the year 1911, the Edson Trail to Grand Pairie from Edson was opened to help settlers reach Grande Prairie. This move led to the development of large scale settlements within the area, moving it further compared to other major farming regions in southern Canada. In the year 1914, Grande Prairie was incorporated as a village by the Province of Alberta. The construction of Highway 43 in the year 1956 significantly cut down traveling time, which further enhanced Grand Prairie's accessibility and economy. It was incorporated as a City in the year 1958 with an estimated population of 7,600 during that time.

There are many festivals that happen within the city including summer-long festivals, that are organized and funded by charitable foundations and private individuals. The kind of its music scene has been dominated by emo, metal and punk bands. Amongst the most famous ones comprise the Emerson Drive, The Goodbye Generation, Damn Plastards, Reject, This Conviction and Calculating Collapse. The Douglas J. Cardinal Performing Arts Centre and the Grand Prairie Live Theatre are great entertainment venues to see a reenactment of life's greatest stories.

The city has several outdoor recreational areas to enjoy, including several parks and golf courses.

One more notable park, Crystal Lake, has a preserved wetland for birdwatching and walking bike paths.

Kakwa Widland Park is on the Alberta-British Columbia Border, and it is a mountainous and wonderful area called Kakwa Falls, which is considered to be one of the most magnificent falls.

The city's financial system is focused around food services, forestry, agriculture, gas and oil. In today's local Grande Prairie economy still depends mostly upon agriculture, with crops of oats, canola, barley and wheat being produced within the Peace region. Livestock, cattle and buffalo are likewise a staple, and the mild climate of the region more than allows the farming culture to prosper always. gas and oil drilling is also an ongoing project at South Peace, and it did not start to occur on a large scale until the late nineteen seventies. The exploitation and discovery of the Elmworth gas field led the city to grow fast until the last oil boom ended in the year 1981. Forestry is also a major part of Grand Prairie's financial system, with big tracts of forest within the Canadian Rockies and the south part of the foothills. Among its biggest companies is the Weyerhaeuser Canada kraft pulp mill. Various major players consist of Canfor, and the Ainsworth OSB.
