Renovation of Heagy-Burry Boat Ramp on Orange Lake

The Heagy-Burry Boat Ramp in northern Marion County, a popular access point for boaters and anglers to Orange Lake, will be among the county’s newest parks to be upgraded thanks to a planned nearly $1.9 million renovation .

District commissioners approved the project earlier this year and adjusted budgeting for it at their meeting last week to provide appropriate grants and funds to convert the boat ramp to two lanes and implement more accessible features and other renovations.

“It’s been on our project list for a long time and the need has been there for a long time, so it’s exciting for us to get it going,” Parks and Recreation Director Jim Couillard told the Star Banner. “We’re excited to be able to do this for the community.”
