Current Recreation and Parks Projects
The Recreation and Parks Department has many projects underway that further the city's strategic goals of providing an enhanced quality of life for Ocala's citizens. Review the Recreation and Parks Projects Listing.

Skate Park Staff Evaluation
In January 2014, staff completed evaluation of the community needs regarding a skate park. In the Fall of 2014 a request for proposals was issued to obtain consultant services for conceptual planning, design and construction services for a skate park at Scott Springs Park. The planning process should be underway by May 2015. Community assistance is needed to raise funds in support o the skate park, whether it is a cash donation or in-kind services/materials. Please support the effort to fund the skate park by calling 352-368-5511. Review the Skate Park Staff Evaluation and refer back to this website often for updated information as we move through the conceptual planning stage of this project.
