Still a bumpy road ahead for proposed Ocala skate park
A skate park proposal is gaining momentum in Marion County, although funding continues to be an obstacle in the road. Ocala Assistant City Manager Catherine Cameron says neither the city nor county has funding set aside.
About 100 members of the community sat down with officials to show their support for the project at a meeting March 8th. Cameron says they are updating the vision of the plan and still figuring out a lot of details. While there is no location chosen yet, many residents favor one of the sites proposed at Jervey Gantt park in Southeast Ocala.
