The City of Ocala will construct a multi-purpose community center to serve the recreation, health/fitness, indoor and outdoor banquet/events, education/library, civic and informational needs of the Ocala community. Previous plans and studies have identified the need for these services to be located in West Ocala. The community center will be constructed on City-owned property in close proximity to Lillian Bryant Park. The facility will be a two-story masonry building of approximately 42,300-square feet. The City will potentially construct the facility in two phases, depending on availability of funding. If phased, the City would expect to construct approximately 25,000-square feet for phase 1 and 17,300-square feet for phase 2. Phase 1 would include everything shown on the conceptual plans except for the gymnasium and indoor walking track.

Senior, youth and family programs
