“A Place to Reset Your Life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

Life is hectic and often stressful. Traffic, bills, work, and family envelope our days. We often fend off these feelings by visiting Shalom Park between On Top of The World and Del Webb communities. There is no fee to enter or park and no items or food for sale. There is, however, all one needs to bring perspective and introspection to your life. The natural well-groomed trails and inspirational signage allow you to imagine a world that is manageable. Thirty minutes at this park and you are ready to take on the challenges in your life. A friend asked us what we did there and our response was "refuel our energy and commitment to ourselves". What better outcome at any price especially at only 30 minutes.

“Serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

A perfect place to get away from people and attractions for a quiet walk or just sitting and relaxing. We stop by each time we're in Ocala.

“Most Peaceful Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

This is an excellent place to take walk or just sit on a bench and reflect. I loved the separate spaces about the park and the quiet sense of calm created by the beautiful plants and water features.

“tranquil, peaceful, beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This little gem, sponsored by the adjoining On Top of the World 55+ senior complex, is a hidden delight. Beautifully landscaped and designed, it has a quietness about it enhanced by fountains and the call of birds. There are many benches and a lot of shade, which make it a wonderful place to spend time with a book or a good friend.
