Carney Island Park’s address is 13275 SE 115 Avenue,
Ocklawaha, FL 32179, which is about 25 minutes NE of the Savannah Center in The Villages.

Carney Island is, in our opinion, one of the most scenic parks in Marion County


 After lunch, we hope to surprise and delight you with entertainers on the beach 

If you’d like, you can reserve lunch from Cody’s (see below) and enjoy it under two elevated large pavilions or separate picnic tables overlooking lovely Lake Weir.

Gator Joe’s Grill

Eaton’s Beach Restaurant

Barefoot Beachcombers Club (‘BBC’ will also suffice)
333 Colony Blvd. #110
The Villages, FL 32162

You could instead hand your addressed envelope to a person at the counter at Safe Ship in Colony Plaza, saving you the stamp.

Or you more active types may take a walk along one of their trails under majestic towering oaks along with these Thanksgiving escapees. 


These four look like they want to hitch a ride with you.

Just try not to take any Spanish moss home in your hair.   

Bring your chairs for a relaxing afternoon of doing “what we Villagers do best!”         

Sorry, but it doesn’t look likely we’ll be swimming barefoot in Central Florida in either January or February.

Your (great?) grandchildren will thank you for discovering this fun park!

Carney Island Recreation and Conservation Park


$7 per car admission will be paid out of the club treasury as our gift to you.

Collect your parking pass at the park’s entrance but do not insert any money in the box.  Instead, we will count our cars and pay for the entire group via one check.

If you are attending, bringing your lunch and drink from home, and will  be driving with friends, you do not need to respond to this invitation.  We will just look forward to seeing you there
