What a joy to spend time in this wonderful park. Whether you are there for a relaxing walk, a jog, or a picnic, it is suited for all. In the spring, the flowers are spectacular. The pond with the fountain hosts koi fish and turtles. Bring some change so you can feed them food from the dispensers.

If staying in Ocala or passing by, you must stop and go and feed the coy fish in this park. They are huge with great wildlife all over the park. Really enjoyed spening a hour here.

We are glad you enjoyed your time at Sholom Park! Yes, the koi fish are giant at our pond, and they love being fed by our visitors. Fish food is available for $.25 at the Pond Overlook right by the pond. Come visit again! We are open every day of the year, free of charge.

Peaceful and quiet on the day we went. Not much to look at but nice just the same. We sat and talked for a while. Certainly a lot of space. It's just a park with planted gardens, shady areas and a few benches scattered around.

All are welcome to enjoy Sholom Park at their own pace, to find meaning in a personal way in peace at no charge. It is a private park; no tax dollars are used for its upkeep. Please come again at any time you feel compelled. The benches are tribute benches, placed in memory of those who have come before us.
