Dedicated October 3, 2003, Centennial Park celebrates Irving's first 100 years of existence. Visitors enter through the Arrival Plaza that houses statues of J.O. Schulze and Otis Brown, co-founders of Irving in 1903. At Founders Plaza, visitors can review the history wall that highlights significant milestones in the city's history. South of Founders Plaza is a stone and steel picnic pavilion on the eastern shoreline of the lake. The pavilion is available for rentals and includes a tower with a 30-foot light spike that symbolizes Irving's shining future.
Centennial Park has ample parking, restrooms, barbecues, walking/running trails and is lit at night.
