Wild Waters in Ocala, FL has been a summertime fun tradition since 1978 for people of all ages. It has also provided summer jobs.
Since the State of Florida has taken over Wild Waters, the Silver Springs State Park Management Plan Advisory Group has decided they want to close our water park.
It is WRONG that a hand full of unelected bureaucrats have the authority to make recommendations which would deny 1,000's of us in Ocala our Waterpark.
The Silver Springs Advisory Group DOES NOT Represent the citizens of Ocala or our wishes. They have proven that they do not care about the majority of Ocala citizens wishes by recommending closure of this beautiful Water Park. The fact that thousands of people patronize Wild Waters each year proves people wants this park to remain open.
There is very little entertainment here in Ocala as it is. Removing and demolishing Wild Waters would be a devastating to the thousands of people who enjoy going there and would also cause the loss of summer time employment for quite a few people.
We are asking that Wild Waters in Ocala, FL be preserved, restored and re-opened as soon as possible.
