Established during the 1880s, Alma Park received its name in 1893 when local school children assembled to plant one hundred trees within its grounds. The first tree was planted by Alma O'Connor, daughter of the Mayor, Alderman O'Connor, and the park now bears her name in remembrance of the occasion.
In springtime, brightly coloured flower beds complement the many grand old trees planted by Alma and her friends all those years ago. A meandering pathway leads visitors past a locally forged iron lace rotunda and down to the picturesque Uralla Creek where an ageing footbridge beckons walkers to continue on to the slightly more challenging walk around nearby Mount Mutton.
Alma Park is a peaceful and relaxing place to stop for a break with plenty of room for caravan and campervan parking. Facilities in the park include toilets, a children's playground and two free electric barbecues.
