Improvements to the Shangri-La Recreation Area of the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway Set to Begin

~Recreation area will be temporarily closed~

MARION COUNTY - Through efforts conducted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Office of Greenways & Trails, improvements to address the safety and usability of the Shangri-La recreation area of the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway will soon be underway.

As of June 1, 2011, the Shangri-La trailhead and recreation area (12788 SW 69th Court, Ocala, FL 34476; N-29.0379/W-82.2406) will be closed for the construction of a new equestrian campground and day use facility. Public access to this trailhead will be fully restricted for approximately seven months. However, trails in the area will remain open and accessible via the 49th Avenue or Ross Prairie Trailheads of the Cross Florida Greenway.

The anticipated completion date for these improvements, which will include restrooms and picnic shelters, is January, 2012. For updates, see http://www.dep.state.fl.us/gwt/.
