Brick City Adventure Park
In 1991, Marion County purchased Brick City Park from St. John Lutheran Church and School, the county's first purchase with the Pennies for Parks bond referendum. Before becoming a public park, local architect Hal Reid designed and built his architecture studio at the bottom of the large lime-rock quarry. Remnants of his office can still be seen from the boardwalk and quarry floor.
The park was renamed Brick City Adventure Park in 2008 when the county assumed maintenance of the park from the City of Ocala. This park offers guided adventures, unlike other parks, including access to White Cliff Cave, a low-ropes course and interpretive hikes through the quarry.
Other amenities include a football field with running track, playground, picnic pavilions and a lit multi-purpose field. The park is also the primary meeting spot for many recreation programs including Firewise Nature Camp and specialty camps.
Contact Marion County Parks and Recreation at 352-671-8560 to reserve the football field, utilize the ropes course or schedule a cave tour. Pavilions are available for private gatherings here: https://www.marioncountyfl.org/departments-agencies/departments-o-z/parks-and-recreation.
