Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Valley Ranch is a planned unit development in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Irving.

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.

Valley Ranch hosts the practice facilities of the Dallas Cowboys football team, and formerly hosted the practice facilities of the Dallas Stars hockey team, who have since moved to Frisco, Texas.

School Districts

MacArthur Boulevard (the major north-south thoroughfare through Valley Ranch) serves as the rough dividing line between the two school districts serving the area: Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District (east side) and Coppell Independent School District (west side). Despite being located in Irving, it is not served by the Irving Independent School District.
