Millennium Park is much more than a simple beautification project. The park serves not only as a gateway to west Irving, but as a symbol of Irving’s entrance into the 21st century. The 30 foot centerpiece fountain, surrounded by the spray from 8 jets spaced around the pool, is located on 2.1 acres situated between Irving Boulevard and Second Street. The project cost $780,000 to build and was completed in six months. The park and its beautiful fountain are visible from City Hall and the new South Library. Fifty US Flags representing the fifty states, encircle the fountain and create a very moving, patriotic display in this magnificent park.
