There are currently no recreation or open space options within the CRA available to residents and employees. Since open space is a vital component of quality communities the Framework Plan calls for new development and redevelopment within the CRA Target Areas to provide for properly designed parks and open spaces. New development and redevelopment within the Target Areas should incorporate and even focus around significant open spaces such as parks, plazas, or other central features. These new parks should be spaced to allow easy access to residents and employees in the CRA.
The first such park will be constructed as part of widening SR 50 around the perimeter of a retention pond being constructed for that project on South Bluford Avenue across from the Ocoee Police Headquarters.
