Wetlands Park on Pace to Open in Fall
Ocala’s 55-acre artificial wetland park, which hopes to infuse up to 5 million gallons of treated water every day back into the Floridan aquifer is set to open this fall.
Officially known as the Wetland Groundwater Recharge Park or just Recharge Park for short, the $6 million project is about 90 percent complete, said Rachel Slocumb, who is with the city’s Water Resources Department.
Work on the park began last August and while it’s not a traditional park, it will include more than two miles of trails including boardwalks over the three ponds in the 2200 block of Northwest 21st Street. See Full Article here.
