Broadmoor Hills is the quintessential Texan suburban neighborhood: pecan, mesquite, and oak trees grow among the modest brick and stone homes with at least one street named in Spanish and lawns so manicured you can't tell if they're getting cut every day or just aren't growing from the lack of rain. This neighborhood is home to mainly young couples and families and lies off an open, wide highway. Random open lots in the suburban area show residents what Irving once was: sprawling, open, and full of possibility.
Irving is north-central Texas, which sees a lot of prairies and plains due to its proximity to Oklahoma. Plains are as flat as flat gets. That's why many Texans, or those who visit the state, often talk about the sunrises and sunsets. A large, flat horizon unencumbered by hills, mountains, trees, or skyscrapers means you get a spectacularly huge view of the sky. Maybe everything really is bigger in Texas!
That won't be true for the hills, however. While this quaint neighborhood of Irving is called Broadmoor Hills, it isn't necessarily hilly. The occasional and mild slope or decline may exist, but it's nothing that will leave you or your furry friend huffing and puffing. In addition to non-challenging inclines, Broadmoor Hills has plenty of sidewalks for you to walk, keeping you and the doggo safe and free to explore an afternoon away. When you get bored of roaming the neighborhood, there's a park just around the corner!
If Dorris isn't enough, just two minutes down the road is the Irving Dog Park. This spacious fenced-in area boasts well-manicured grass, shaded concrete pavilions, and doggy water fountains. The park is divided with space designated to smaller breeds and another space for larger breeds, making it an ideal place to bring your pooch no matter how large or small they may be.
