  • Guests must provide their own Coast Guard-approved life jackets, kickboards, pull buoys and other equipment. No items are available for loan.


The Parks and Recreation Department has taken great care to build a safe reopening plan for Irving residents. Due to limited availability, scheduling and reduced capacities, city facilities are available to Irving residents only. When visiting aquatic and recreation facilities, patrons should bring water, hand sanitizer and hand wipes.

Residents must reserve a time for all recreation center and aquatic facility activities. Once registered on ActiveNet, members can purchase an Irving Parks and Recreation (IPAR) membership card for $5 at the recreation centers. At this time, all guests must be an Irving resident to receive an IPAR card.
