Downtown Ocala will look very different in the future after the City received millions of dollars to help spruce it up. The city recently secured a two million dollar federal grant to re-align the railroad lines along Osceola Avenue and SE 3rd Street. The project is key to a linear park that will connect the downtown to Tuscawilla Park. City officials say the plans will help make the downtown more pedestrian friendly while creating a downtown hub. Other improvements to the downtown have already started, like the Citizens Square at City Hall. The railroad project could begin as early as October.
