One of my favorite things about the On Top of the World community in Ocala, FL is the sheer number of amenities available to residents. How could you ever get bored here?
Let’s take a closer look at some of my favorites…
Master the Possibilities is On Top of the World’s lifelong learning program that offers over 1,800 classes and presentations a year with topics relevant to today’s active adults. The stand alone lifelong learning center features four classrooms, a computer lab, three art studios and a library/café area. Larger classes are held in adjacent lecture halls that can accommodate 200+ students.
The garden club provides a hands-on opportunity for residents to grow their own food and flowers. With four gardens located within the community, residents can make the most of the current growing season.
There are three dog parks at On Top of the World to the delight of man’s best friend. Each park has a fenced area with separate playing areas for small dogs and large dogs. Water is available for the dogs and shaded seating for their owners. The park is open daily from sun up to sun down, and residents now refer to late afternoon gatherings as Doggie Happy Hour.
Dancing, festivals, fairs and more…all located at the Town Square in On Top of the World. This open-air plaza features a gazebo for entertainers, seating for patrons, a kiosk for refreshments as well as other eateries and plenty of space for dancing. Enjoy weekly entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings. Live performers and recorded favorites provide just the right tempo for a dancing crowd. Throughout the year a variety of festivals are hosted on The Town Square, such as a Patriotic Celebration with fireworks, Oktoberfest, a Country Fair and the Island Festival.
The Town Square is also home to the weekly Farmer’s Market every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. What could be better than farm fresh produce? Getting it at the weekly Farmer’s Market held right at On Top of the World. Produce, meats, cheese, baked goods and more as well as locally made one of a kind craft items are available. And each month there is a cooking demo using flavors of the season found at the market. Grab a recipe card and try the dish at home.
And lets not forget about the golf. At On Top of the World you can choose from three (3) golf courses, two private courses and one semi-private course. Impeccably maintained, these courses offer outstanding play throughout the year. The club also features a driving range, practice facility and pro shop.
