Visiting the Ocala Wetlands Recharge Park

Thursday August 25th 2022

Today’s weather was very similar to yesterday except for the severity of the thunderstorm. The day began sunny and humid. As the day went by the cloud cover increased. Toward evening the thunderstorms arrived, but today the worst of the storm passed by to the north of here.

For exercise today I visited the Ocala Wetland Recharge park. This is a wetland area created to filter treated wastewater and ground water back into the underground aquifer. It is basically a wetland park with several algae covered ponds. There are several trails and boardwalks around the park. The placards indicate that the park is home to small mammals, reptiles and birds. Today, I only saw the birds, but lots of different ones.
