Ocala Wetland Recharge Park
The 60 acres of conservation area will provide greenspace for the west side of Ocala. The brand new park opened Sept. 21, 2020!
The Ocala Wetland Recharge Park features educational kiosks, 2.5 miles of walking trails, and scenic boardwalks. This environmental landmark receives approximately three million gallons of treated wastewater and stormwater daily. The engineered ecological system of the park will reduce nutrients and other pollutants in the water it receives. The now polished water will recharge or give water directly back to the aquifer. An additional benefit of the park will be outdoor passive recreation and the educational components.
The project broke ground in June 2018 was completed in 27 months. Funding for construction of the park was made possible through grants received from the St. John's River Water Management District, Florida Department of Environmental Protection Legislative Springs Funding, Florida Department of Environmental Protection Recreation and Trail Program, and Florida Department of Environmental Protection 319 Non-point Source Pollution.
