Irving Nature Park reviews
Very nice trails, etc. and great nature preserves, etc. All that is OK, but not the roads to the park. Gravel and huge potholes. Fix-r up please. more »
Road into the park is rough, and road around rougher. Make sure you do not end up going the wrong way. Most trails run atleast partially very close to the road so can be difficult if you are looking..... more »
Check out ALL of the trails! Spend an entire day there with your family and friends. There is so much beauty to see at the nature park -including wildlife so tame I had a squirrel climb on my shoulder while eating a sandwich on the beach. You will fall in love with this place.
Great park for the whole family. Playground and mazes for the kids and long walks for the parents. Beautiful view and great idea!
