Our Promise

At Ocala Recreation and Parks we endeavor to provide you with experiences uniquely yours in safe places and spaces that captivate and inspire - where strangers become friends and friends become a family we call community - where little boys and girls dream of mighty achievements and their families and neighbors are their biggest fans - where the song of the swing set, the roaring of the crowd and the rustling of the leaves all blend into a sweet symphony - where time and troubles slip away into smiles and laughter.

At Ocala Recreation and Parks we endeavor to ensure that the memories you make with us here today will be the treasured stories you share with your family, friends, children, and grandchildren tomorrow. We look forward to sharing this journey with you.
