State Buys Land For Florida Greenway


State park managers have said they will be buying or trading land in Marion, Palm Beach, and Jackson counties.

This is to fill the gaps of the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, a recreational outdoor area that spans 110 miles.

Marion County wants funding from the Florida Department of Transportation.

The program is currently getting 1.5 percent of the Florida Forever Program’s funds.

The additional land from the purchases will allow for more trails.

The Greenway, which crosses Central Florida from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River, offers a diverse natural habitat and a wide array of trails and recreation areas.
