In addition to the recreational riches of area lakes, Coleman presents a showcase for outdoor activities.
Also known as the "Hunting Capital of Texas," the area is home to ample populations of deer, turkey, ducks, dove and quail. The plentiful wildlife is also a boon for non-hunting nature lovers.
Coleman's City Park, located on the scenic banks of Hord's Creek, offers picnic facilities under majestic shade trees, a western museum, tennis courts, a recreation center with an Olympic-size swimming pool and playground equipment.
Noted for its tough stock and talented cowboys, Coleman's PRCA approved rodeo is held annually during the last week of June. Other competitive events include one of the nation's largest county livestock show, Junior Rodeo and the Coleman County Fiesta de la Paloma and Dove Cook-off.
Rounding out Coleman's recreational bounty is the Coleman Country Club that features club facilities, swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course. It is open to visitors on a fee basis.
Just as its natural bounty, Coleman considers its people an important resource. This is why education plays a significant role in the life of the community! Coleman County has four separate school districts --- Coleman ISD a 2A district and Santa Anna ISD, Panther Creek ISD and Novice ISD, all IA districts.
Cultural institutions are also an important force in and around Coleman. They range from the Coleman Public Library to the Coleman County Museum. There is also a Fine Arts League, Friends of the Coleman Library, and several civic clubs, including Masonic Lodge, Lions, Rotary and Kiwanis.
