Irving has such a diverse atmosphere not only in the public schools but community held events. Which get people outside of their homes to meet the other community members, in the 18 years I have been living here this new experience they brought is phenomenal and I hope they continue to do this for years to come. My favorite was the Christmas Jubilee where companies in the community came out and served food for free as well as holding different activities for younger kids and teenagers. I was amazed by the turn out yet to realize Irving is such a diverse place filled with different cultures that should be embraced!

I love that the natural landscape is an important part of my neighborhood. There are so many trees, wildlife including ducks, rabbits, and owls, and a canal meandering through the area bordered by walkways that connect to the Katy Trail. I'm so much happier being on the outskirts of Dallas rather than city center. The sunsets are beautiful, too!
Irving Texas is a safe city, friendly, lots of mixed cultures. Very clean. Great police officers help keep the city safe. Congressman of district 24 is a righteous legislator. Lots of family oriented things to do. The Trinity River is wonderful and the canals is a great place to exercise, walk, meditate. Lots of great schools for children, excellent colleges near by and churches. Lots of great shopping and very close to DFW Airport. Lots of restaurants, parks, recreations and great hospitals like Baylor and Methodist. Beautiful homes and apartments, town-homes are cozy and affordable. Excellent place to live if you love the outdoors, exercise and watch the beautiful animals and flowers. Community is very involved and many schedule activities for families. I love living in Irving TX and always recommend people to come and check the new homes being built.
