McAlester is brimming with a variety of exciting and fun activities for families with kids of all ages. Enjoy one of our 14 public parks, including special parks for dogs, skating, and archery. Swing by Great Balls of Fire for some Atomic Bowling, to play a round of miniature golf, or to climb their vertical rock wall. Get wet and cool off at one of the public splash pads or wading pools. Taste the McAlester culture at the Italian Festival. Or venture outside of McAlester on a sight-seeing tour of the Ouachita Mountains. We have it all!
