Topic: The Ocala Wetland Recharge Park allows the City of Ocala to efficiently use its water resources. By developing and operating this park the City of Ocala has created a wetland ecosystem, improved water quality and is boosting regional groundwater supplies by utilizing treated wastewater. The park sits on a 60 acre parcel and has welcomed over 50,000 visitors since its opening in September 2020. The park features 2.5 miles of paved walking trials, educational exhibits, scenic overlooks and educational signs.
