Life in Kimball

Kimball has a little something for everyone.  Low cost of living and incredible location makes living and working in Kimball attractive.  Some may love the safe, quiet, and slow pace of life that comes with a rural community, but I have to tell you, we aren't too quiet or slow.

Recreation

Four Winds Golf Course:  Kimball is home to one of the finest and most challenging golf courses in hundreds of miles.   Four Winds is a Par 72, 18 hole course.   This course is still a hidden gem so you do not need a tee time to play.  Hole 4 was rated the toughest hole in the state by the Omaha World Herald. Kimballites disagree and feel that Hole 1 and 17 are much more challenging.  For more information click here or call the Golf Pro, Chad Wise, at 308.235.4241

Oliver Reservoir - A few miles west of Kimball is a 917 acres campground with a 270-acre lake. Oliver Lake State Recreation Area is the only water based recreational facility in the southwest Panhandle. Facilities include a campground, two boat ramps and docks, swimming beach, change houses, drinking water, vault toilets, 130 picnic tables, two picnic shelters with electricity, 142 charcoal cooking grills, 75 camping pads and 100 non-pads without electricity, lighting and parking lots.

Public Parks -  Kimball has two public parks, Gotte Park and City Park.  Gotte Park is home to the Kimball Municipal Swimming Pool.  For rates and dates open, contact the City of Kimball offices at 308.235.3639.

Bowling Alley – Kim Bowl Bowling Center is a modern and up-to-date facility: synthetic lanes, automatic scoring and a pro shop.  Great food and a full line of beverages.  Open bowling, leagues, and tournament competition. For more information, call 308-235-4301.


History

The Plains Historic Society actively is working to discover and preserve Kimball's history.  Currently, they run the Plains Historical Museum in the downtown Fraternal Hall.  They recently bought and are updating the historic highschool and are converting it into a new museum.  

Events
