Located at 200 NW 15th Place, the new park was funded by the North Magnolia Community Redevelopment Agency and the City of Ocala Recreation and Parks department.

City officials hope the park will help “revitalize” the Marion Heights community nearby.

“This vibrant park will not only provide a much-needed recreation space for the residents of all ages in the area, but it also assists in revitalizing the surrounding environment and properties in the Marion Heights community,” said Aubrey Hale, Planning Director for the city of Ocala, in a statement.
