Blue Run park closer to reality

Published Nov. 3, 2007
Blue Run of Dunnellon Park is one very large step closer to becoming a reality.

On Friday, the Florida Communities Trust, using a portion of its Florida Forever Funds, awarded roughly $2.2 million for the purchase of 32.5 acres south of the County Road 484 bridge. The land is on the east shore of the Rainbow River in Dunnellon, an area commonly referred to as the tuber exit.

"I think it's going to be great for Dunnellon," Kenny said. "It will help make Dunnellon a destination. It has value to it because it helps to protect our spring shed and the river itself, and keeps it from being developed."
