Down by the railway tracks is a sports park although it seems that the various activities are a bit scattered. There is a basketball court, sand volleyball and city pavilion not to mention State Sanction Horseshoe Pits. Not exactly a hive of activity when I was there but nevertheless I’m sure popular for tossing those horseshoes.
The Country Club is just out of Mineola heading west or you pass it as you are coming into Mineola heading east. This is a 9 hole golf course which is rated as the 17th best nine hole course in Texas. There is no driving range but there is a warm up practise area. The club also has a dining area, bar and swimming pool.
