Despite Malcolm, Nebraska's small size. it offers a wealth of recreational activities for surrounding communities. Conveniently located between two of this area's most popular lakes: Pawnee and Branched Oak, Malcolm offers a variety of fishing and water recreation.
Those looking for a bit dryer experience can find comfort in the fact that Malcolm has two separate parks. One is located on the edge of town and offers beautiful picnic settings, as well as being a great place for the High School's science classes to understand nature. The second of these two parks is in the residential sector of Malcolm. It offers various playground equipment. Rarely will one drive or walk by this sunken park and not notice the laughter of the town's children enjoying it's facilities.
