Have you visited the Ocala Wetland Recharge Park?

Have you visited the Ocala Wetland Recharge Park?

If you have visited, you’ll likely agree that your first trip to the park will almost certainly not be your last.

If you haven’t visited, you must, because it is fantastic.

Located at 2105 NW 21st Street, the park is one of the not-so-hidden gems that city officials have made for all to enjoy.

We encourage you to take a trip to see it.

The wildlife and plant-life ecosystem at the park is on constant display. Every day you can see some of the things that remind us that Ocala, and the state of Florida, are filled with natural beauty.

The walkways and exhibits are a testimony to what types of birds, reptiles, or other critters you might encounter.

In our visits, we were never let down.

Whether it is a duck family doing laps in one of the marshy cells, or an egret looking for a meal, you don’t have to walk far to run into some of the beautiful wildlife that visit the park.

Recently, the city added exhibits and stations to help explain all of the features the recharge park incorporates. The city has hopes to incorporate additional exhibits, a pavilion, and an educational center in the future.
