Heritage Park in Irving Texas is being redeveloped by Denton’s North Rock Construction. The 34 year old park is focused on the history of Irving and is now being expanded. It has artifacts that were donated and some were moved to the site while others were there when the park was created. The park is currently completely closed and fenced off as construction continue to work. Irving plans is to turn the park into a true community gathering space. The entire project is expected to cost approximately $6.5 million. Here is a list of the new additions and improvements.
