 The Holiday Season is here so let the festivities begin!  Visit beautiful Downtown Ocala and feel the spirit of Christmas.  Why not take the family to "Let's Skate Ocala" which is open from November 22-January 4 and is available for party rentals.  The kids will love our new theme nights such as:  Ugly Sweater Party, The Grinch, "Frozen", Disney, Taylor Swift Night, Kids Saturday Skates and FUNdays with Santa.  And who could forget about “Santa on the Square” every Tuesday and Thursday from December 2-18 from 6-8 p.m.  Bring the family to “Holiday Happenings” most nights in December for Holiday activities and entertainment that the whole community has come to enjoy!  For more information, please call 352.368.5517.  Come Out and Play Ocala!          




The Ocala Recreation and Parks Department has a variety of programs and services to meet your leisure service needs. We have programs for the young and the young-at-heart; programs for those who enjoy being active and for those who just want some down-time; programs for guys and gals of all ages! We have indoor programs. We have outdoor programs. We can guide you, or you can guide yourself. This is your time - and you are the star!  Make it meaningful.  We invite you, Ocala, to Come Out and Play.

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.
