Mallard Lakes is a very beautiful and unique neighborhood. Homes sit on large lots and the neighborhoods is up on a hill off of Virginia in McKinney. When you enter the neighborhood you get a sense of peacefulness due to the majestic homes and mature trees.
Children attend the McKinney Independent School District, including Walker Elementary School, Faubion Middle School, and McKinney Boyd High School. The exemplary rated elementary school is across from the neighborhood making it very convenient for parents and students.
