Recreation & Tourism
The city of Friend is quite proud of its golf course, rated as one of the top 9-hole courses in Nebraska. Established in 1967 as a non-profit semi-private course and restaurant, the Friend Country Club shows its generosity by allowing area and visiting non-members to utilize the golf course and its facilities. Today, the club solely functions for its members, who utilize the Pro Shop, restaurant, and lounge, as well as the course and the full service dinning room.

|Once listed in Ripley's Believe It or Not as the world's smallest in police station, this tiny building started out as a tool shed for the construction crews who built Highway 6. Its size was doubled in the 1960s so that the State Patrol could also use it. However, it still is believed to be the smallest combination police station in the world.
The station remains a tourist attraction. However, the real reason it has remained at its original location is the view for about one mile east and west on Highway 6, as well as giving a clear view of Main Street.
When passenger trains stopped in Friend, Richard Widick, a long time night marshal, would greet the passengers. He would even drive the night train's passengers to their locations in town.
Park & Pool
The park covers 10 acres and contains rest rooms, swimming pool, club house, tennis court, playground equipment, volleyball court, picnic areas and a softball field.
The pool is 100 feet in diameter and is complete with a bath house. Three lifeguards are on duty when the pool is open.
