Hardin Lake is truly a special place to live. The community is on a quiet side road off of Hardin and boasts a beautiful lake along the southern border of the neighborhood. Trees line the southern border as well. Since Hardin Lake is built on a hillside the lots are terraced with stone retaining walls. This ensures beautiful views from all the homes.
Children attend the McKinney Independent School District, including Valley Creek Elementary School, Faubion Middle School, and McKinney High School.
