Podmore Zoological GardensThe area around Irvingly is filled with a lush forest where much wildlife dwells. Set about a mile from the edge of the city is Lake Greer, a lake nearly the same size as the town itself. As far as anyone knows, it holds freshwater fish of the non magical variety. The hollow offers room to hunt, forage and explore. Meadows are woven in and out of it at random. The northwest section possesses steep hills and small mountains that are accompanied by valleys and creeks throughout.
The north side of Irvingly is decidedly different than the south. While the muggles had solid homes built for them, the magical residents were left to their own devices when it came to shelter. Homes of different styles and skill levels have been erected. Magic is not allowed on the streets even in the north side, so wizards have to be careful to keep such things inside the privacy of their homes.

Salem Square Quality MeatsThe commercial district of Salem Square lies in the very heart of Irvingly. The casino and the home and office of the Magical Liaison is set at the very center, a perfect location for neutrality between the two communities in an attempt to peacefully unite them. Over time, more and more businesses have grown around them, and a large, open area lies just in front. At a distance of one mile from Irvingly, Ivana Memorial Asylum - a three story brick building - is quiet and secluded, but not so far removed that it is at risk from the dangers in the mountains.

Originally made of poorly built ramshackle huts, the south side of Irvingly has since been remade into neat and organized red brick and stone two story homes that are identical in appearance. The muggles tend to stick to this side of the town in order to avoid running into the magic folk.
