Tapp City Park Sports Center

The citizens of New Boston are extremely proud of our Sports Center which contains eight modern baseball fields.

This Sports Center hosts many state baseball and softball tournaments. A very active youth sports association manages these facilities and approximately 1500 children are engaged in softball, baseball, soccer, basketball and football on a year round basis.
Also located in this city park are the girl scout and boy scout facilities which have excellent leadership and support in our town.
The park is a convenient and well used site for family get-togethers and walking on the walking trail which follows a beautiful path through the trees.

T & P Trail Head Park

T & P Trail Head Park got its name from Texas and Pacific Railroad. The property that T & P sets on is the old railroad that originally came through back in the 1870's! When the city bought the property in the past 10 years, the city decided to name the Park after the railroad; thus the name- T & P Trail Head Park. What started as just an old grassy area has turned into a huge success. T & P Pavilion is a 150' x 100' pavilion that is 44' tall, it is also where we hold our music concerts during Pioneer Days and other events! T & P Midway is across from the Pavilion and has approximately 200' of asphalted drive with electrical boxes and lots of grassy area to hold other events!! On the back side of the Pavilion is the T & P Gazebo that is outlined by an asphalt walk with beautiful Victorian lights, benches and picnic tables. Any part of the Park may be rented for a family reunion, wedding or other outing. Contact Nancy 903.628.2581.
