Jaycee Center for the Arts
The Jaycee Center for the Arts, built in 1966, is located here. Its art gallery is home to the Irving Art Association. Founded in 1956 IAA provides art exhibits, classes, and other activities most of which are free and open to the public.
Behind the art gallery (originally the front of the building) you’ll find Irving’s first public art sculpture. Created by Hilliard Stone, a local artist and instructor at North Lake College, this structure was erected in 1978. Hippo sculptures created by artist David Iles and gifted to the city were added to the duck pond in 2003.
The Policemen’s Memorial is located in the northwest corner of that park. Close to it is a small botanical garden and walking path. With its picnic tables, bbq grills and playground equipment this park is ideal for family fun days.
You are looking for a small container a little room for small tradeables. Please exercise stealth as the parking lot is nearby.
