Valley Ranch, Irving, Texas facts for kids
The name comes from the fact that the land it is sited on was formerly a working ranch and is located below a large ridge, and thus resembles a valley. The area lies in the Trinity River floodplain; however, an extensive levee system on its eastern side separates the river from land, thus making it desirable for development. In order to maintain flood control and to provide recreation facilities for residents, Valley Ranch has many winding canals with walkways throughout.
