Walker-Hawk Sports Complex
Thanks to donations by Mr. Dee Brown Walker and Mr. Robert Hawk, the community sports complex was created. The Walker-Hawk Sports complex contains four softball/baseball fields, a playground, a concession stand and a soccer/football field. Thanks to a grant through the Texas Parks and Wildlife and the CDC, the city was able to connect the sports complex to the recently renovated, Old Mill Park. A 3,750 foot trail connects the two parks and offers two shade structures along the trail with benches, all made possible through the grants.
More For the Youth

Other notable programs include the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, and a very active area Youth Association which offers a variety of sports activities for children of all ages throughout the year.
