My family is relocating to the Dallas area. I will be working in Richardson, but my hubby will be in Irving. We are considering Murphy right now, but understand that will be quite a commute for him. We are looking to spend 300-350k on a house, preferably new construction. We want to be in a subdivision with young families, amenities including trails and a pool, and a good school district.

In Murphy what are some subdivisions that fit the bill?

Any suggestions on better options than Murphy that might fit our needs? We prefer for only one of us to have to take toll roads unless it is a short distance in the tolls.

IIRC, the only Murphy subdivision in the Plano school district still building is Rolling Ridge. I don't know if that is within your budget. There are still 2-3 subdivisions in the Wylie school district part of Murphy still building, Maxwell Creek, The Gables and The Ranch.

Most of Murphy is built out if you require new construction.

I think there's two houses left in Rolling Ridge that would be brand new. Not sure the price. Maxwell Creek has new construction, a pool and the linear trail along the actual Maxwell Creek and fits your budget. It's Wylie ISD.

I was going to suggest you also look in the Aviary, or Hunter's Landing 5 because there are pre-owned homes that are still pretty new. And Aviary has a pool and a nice park.

I will say that any neighborhood you pick in Murphy will be family friendly. Schools are solid across the city, but Plano does have the stronger district. I'd say about half the neighborhoods have an HOA pool, but the ones that don't have a ton of homes with pools (so you'll either buy one or have friendly neighbors with one). The city does not have a pool and only has very long term plans to ever have one.
