Alma Park was previously known as the East St Kilda Recreation Reserve and then in 1859 divided into two parks separated by the Sandringham railway line.
Today the Alma park encompasses significant avenues of mature trees, a colourful central shrub walk, bike path, playground, gazebo, sports oval, toilets and BBQ facilities.
The park features the artwork 'Listening Place' by artist Julie Shields with the sound installation designed by Ros Bandt for the Margins, Memories and Markers project. The artwork captures stories and memories of local resident living in the St Kilda East area.
