Memorial Public Library
In addition to the fine school district facilities, the Hoesch Memorial
Public Library contains more than 12,000 books, periodicals and
other materials, with resources including computers and high speed
Internet access, and a variety of additional services to residents.
Alma offers three very different city parks. The main city park
features an excellent municipal pool as well as lots of trees, picnic
areas and the Hoesch Memorial Public Library. The second park, near
the municipal golf course, features baseball diamonds where the
American Legion league is among several that play baseball and softball
every summer. Alma’s third park is a “pocket park”
at the starting point for the Pheasant Ridge trail, with lush grass
and trees, great scenery, picnic tables and benches and a gazebo.
Municipal Golf Course
An exceptionally well maintained nine-hole golf course challenges
golfers from around the region. The par 36 3,000 yard course is
open 7 days a week, weather permitting. The three year old clubhouse
features a bar and banquet facility overlooking the course.
A three mile paved trail along the shoreline of Harlan County Lake
was completed in 2005. From the picnic area and gazebo at the
west end to the boat ramp and campground at Methodist Cove on
the east end, the Pheasant Ridge Trail meanders along the woods
and shoreline. Lighting was added to the entire trail in 2006,
making it enjoyable year-round.
