McKinney Welcomes Your Filming Project!

McKinney is a popular filming venue because of our unique visual offerings. Our historic downtown, quaint commercial buildings, long-standing businesses and historic homes offer an attractive environment for filming. But that’s not all – Adriatica, our authentic Croatian village and our lush parks and open spaces also provide great possibilities for filmmakers.

Filming in a City Park or on a Hiking or Biking Trail

If your desired film shoot is taking place in one of our city parks or on a hiking or biking trail, before submitting a film permit application please call Assistant Parks Director, at 972-547-7482 to check on park or trail availability as well as if the park or trail is suited for your filming needs.
