Irving Reviews

One’s experience with Irving will be highly dependent on their nearness to Dallas. No real music venues here. The school district does a mediocre job of supporting its fine arts programs. Las Colinas is wealthy and well-accommodated in general. South/Central Irving is constantly under construction which is inconvenient virtually all year-round. However, the neighborhoods here are friendly and calm. Unfortunately, all major intersections seem to enjoy the regular passage of cat-callers who like to bother young pedestrians. Irving does boast a variety of churches, parks, and restaurants. Not a terrible place to raise a family. But certain areas are very populous on the sex offender registries.

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 think Irving is great. I come from Irving, las Colinas , Hackberry Creek an excellent neighborhood with excellent neighbors that I am close to. Irving also has a great connection to nature, for Irving has many open spaced grassy areas. The city of Irving parks are all well taken care of. My favorite park, Mustang Park outside of Hackberry Creek is great for I can run some daily miles and feel connected to nature. It's super safe, and their Is always a great variety of people to meet and talk to. In addition, Irving restaurants are great their really close to any household for the center of irvings commerce is in Las Colinas and the farthest commute to get their is about 15 minutes. The gastrointestinal restaurant is great and only in Irving. It is my favorite offering unique menu combinations. After eating their I also feel comfortable walking around the streets for Irving is so safe. Thus, I love being a resident if Irving.
