Community Info of Mill Valley
Characterized as a bustling suburban city with a small town feel, Mansfield marries old and new, progress and history, attracting families from all over DFW. Historic downtown offers local charm while thriving businesses and retailers provide every modern convenience. Sitting approximately 30 miles from both Dallas and Fort Worth, and just a few miles south of I-20, Mill Valley homeowners have access to the big city while still having everything they desire close to home. It is no wonder it was voted as one of the best places to live by Money Magazine while its “safest city” status was recognized in 2016 by Safewise. Just minutes away, Town Park features playgrounds, covered pavilions, picnic areas, and an outdoor amphitheater. During warm weather, locals cool off at Hawaiian Falls or take advantage of an abundance of outdoor recreation compliments of Joe Pool Lake, where fishing, bike trails and a marina appeal to a wide range of interests. Golfers will love the convenience of both Mansfield National Golf Club, which brags one of the toughest par threes in the metroplex and Tangle Ridge Golf Club with a look and feel that could pass for the Texas Hill Country.

Move up within the Midlothian ISD to take advantage of MISD Career and Technical programs to jumpstart your kids on their desired career path in fields including law, public service, manufacturing, science, engineering, agriculture, business, information technology, and more.

Coursework within the programs also connects students with mentors and experts in their desired field, setting them up for success in the real world after graduation.
