Environmental Services has received the following land management
plans for properties 160 acres and smaller in size. Acquisition and
Restoration Council (ARC) members who wish to have any of these

ARC Staff Director, prior to the date indicated below. Please note
that at least three ARC members must make the request for a plan for
a property smaller than 160 acres in size to be scheduled for an ARC
agenda. If we do not receive three requests by the stated deadline

Florida Horse Park
Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park Authority, Sublease No. 4013-90-1
The Florida Horse Park is a 500 acre equestrian facility located in Marion County.
It is situated within the Cross Florida Greenway State Recreation and Conservation Area,
which is managed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Greenways
and Trails. However, the Horse Park is not part of the Wildlife Management Area of the Greenway.
There are multiple permanent and temporary structures on the property. Outside the primary area
utilized by the Horse Park Authority, the property consists of cleared fields of grass and wooded acres.
Additionally, there are several miles of riding trails through the Horse Park and connecting to the Cross
Florida Greenway. There are no outstanding areas or features on the property other than the Horse Park Facility.
The Florida Agriculture Center & Horse Park Authority (FACHPA) was created on March 14, 1996
by Sections 570.951 and 570.952, Florida Statutes (F.S.).
Three ARC members have requested the Division of State Lands place this
management plan on a future Council meeting agenda. The Division of State
Lands will schedule the plan for ARC consideration in the near future.
If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Ms. Jennifer Reed, Land Planning Coordinator,
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, at Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org.
