A Great Place to Live
Irving is a great place to live, work, play and raise a family. In fact, Bloomberg’s Business Week included Irving in its “America’s 50 Best Cities” list and ranked our city #20 on its “Best City for Families” list.
Irving offers a wide variety of housing in a number of vibrant and diverse neighborhoods that range from contemporary affordability to high-end luxury. Whether you prefer apartment living in the Las Colinas Urban Center with a city feel and walkability to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Orange Light Rail, or a single-family home on a large, wooded lot, Irving offers the ideal option to make our city your home.
Cultural entertainment and lifestyle amenities abound throughout our city. From the nationally recognized Irving Arts Center, which hosts more than 20 exhibitions annually alongside live music and theater, to the Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory, a 250,000-square-foot world-class venue at the center of a 17-acre entertainment and dining district, Irving offers entertainment choices to suit all ages and preferences. The Heritage District and downtown Irving also provide residents and visitors with Big State Fountain’s retro diner experience, which includes old-fashioned, homemade milkshakes and malts.
In addition, the City’s 190 acres of parks and greenbelts, 17 miles of canal waterways and 10 miles of riverside hiking and biking trails offer unlimited outdoor experience opportunities. One example is Campion Trail, a master-planned, 22-mile greenbelt along the Elm Fork and West Fork of the Trinity River.
Irving’s many amenities also include four great libraries with the most current technology; dog parks like Paws Colinas, a seven-acre park filled with pooch-focused amenities; and Heritage Senior Center, which provides our city’s seniors with exclusive access to a full-size pool, workout room, wide range of group exercises and classes, and low-cost daily lunch options.
