If you are in Alma why not stop and see Popeye. It will have you singing the Popeye cartoon theme song. Nice garden with benches and gazebos to sit in and it's shaded. Fun pictures to be taken. Why not bring a can of spinach...More

Town was small. Easy to find. Neat park. Great pit stop to stretch your legs and get some photos of the famous spinach eater. Planters leading up to the statue were planted with spinach. Free!

Gorgeous, well kept park with gazebos and a gorgeous fountain. Popeye statue is cute and fun for a photo op. Perfect place to stretch your legs and let kids run around. We only wished we could have bought a Popeye shirt!
