If you’re looking for a great place for a family picnic, an energizing workout, or just a lovely day in the park, be sure to check out Floral Park in Floral City, Florida and you won’t be disappointed.
Floral City Florida is located on the south east edge of Citrus County, flanked by the Withlacoochee River on the east. Floral City has an “old” Florida feel about and the residents take pride in preserving the local heritage.
Historic Orange Avenue offers a look back at turn of the century Victorian life in Floral City, many of the one hundred plus year old homes are still in use and open to the public one a year during Floral City Heritage Days each December. The Festival offers a glimpse at what life was live for early settlers. There are horse-drawn wagon rides, caroling and music, fish fry & BBQs, Model “A” car show, museum and “Country Store”. Around 5,000 residents call Floral City home. There is a bicycle shop and the 46 mile long paved Withlacoochee State Trail for biking and hiking crosses right through town.
Other activities in Floral City include hunting, boating, fishing, and air boating to get to the many inaccessible back water fishing holes that make up the area. The Ferris Groves Fruit Company is also a popular main stay of the area. Established in 1930, L. G. “Doc” Ferris began planting citrus in rich hammock soil on an island in Floral City, Florida.
Over the years this soil has produced all varieties of Florida’s Finest Citrus and is still open for business today. The annual Floral City Strawberry Festival is also something to look forward to each March.
