FALL in Love with Parks

November welcomes seasonal change, but that’s not all Ocala will see changing this fall.

The City of Ocala is excited to announce the Downtown Ranger Program, a new initiative intended to enhance the customer experience in downtown Ocala. This experienced twosome will monitor and serve Ocala’s downtown, from the S-curve north to Ocala Union Station, seven days a week. The goal of this program is to provide assistance to business owners, residents and visitors in downtown Ocala. These rangers will also provide enhanced safety and security for the downtown area.

LIVE on the Square kicked off in September and will act as an evening soundtrack for patrons visiting downtown Ocala. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 6 to 8 p.m., you can expect to hear new or familiar voices filling up the streets with live music. If you are interested in performing, please email a soundbite or video to jinglehart@ocalafl.org, along with your name and contact information. As the holidays roll in, so does the entertainment.

Have our new digital signs caught your eye? Recently, the City of Ocala Recreation and Parks Department installed three large, full color digital signs to help share information across our community. These signs are located at the Jervey Gantt Recreation Complex, NE Eighth Avenue, and the corner of State Road 40 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. These signs are constantly being updated with information you won’t want to miss!

The City of Ocala’s Cultural Arts & Sciences Division has a new home downtown. What is commonly known as the Lilsa Building is now home to our Cultural Arts and Sciences staff. Having called Ocala Union Station “home” for quite some time, our team is excited about the move and being in the heart of downtown Ocala. The office is located at 223 SW Broadway St. To contact this division, please call (352) 629-8447.
