A Community Set Outdo

The outdoors are calling in Plainview with multiple parks as well as an open country landscape that skirts the city. In town, the school sports team and weekend leagues have their choice of six baseball diamonds. Two basketball courts allow for one-on-one or team games while the golf ranges, including one for disc golf, allow for a mellow outdoor pace. The fun does not end there, however, as the multiple soccer courts, volleyball courts, softball courts, and other sports fields keep the whole town outside for a good time. Cookouts and picnics are on the agenda, too.
