I have to laugh at the people trying to paint Marion oaks as like some kind of mini east L.A., I just rented a house there for $600 a month; here in Manchester NH i am paying $1000 a month for the third floor of a 70 year old firetrap. In the year I've lived here I have called 911 about 8 times, had drunks on my porch, the basement storage robbed, fights behind and in front, wild noisy parties all along the street, and have had to breathe the cigarette smoke of the other two apartments rising up into mine. Before Manchester I lived in Boston. FFS go live in a real city before you start whining about Ocala. Can't wait to move in...a big house and nice yard....As far as crime, well, I have a gun permit in NH and will get one in Florida. Come in uninvited and get shot. I trust the jury to make the right decision.

The same goes for us -- that's why we just bought in Dunnellon.

So if someone wants to have their trash picked up instead of hauling it to the dump themselves, they're a synonym for a donkey? Give me a break.

Ocala Fl. has its own special breed, bored and impatient. If you want to challenge these players, get in the race, otherwise, step aside, let them poison each other.

I don't believe that for a second please provide proof.

Default moving to Marion Oaks

Hi, we are moving to Marion Oaks in January 2010. I would like to know if it floods anywhere in the section of Marion Oaks south of Rt 484?
How far away is any river, creek or any body of water that would cause flooding. Do those retention ponds flood when it rains a lot? Enough to damage homes? Thanks for any info!

Marion Oaks South is overpopulated and very "colorful". Sunrise elem. is very overpopulated and that's why a new school is being built on the North side of 484. There is crime and most of the crimes are destruction of property and theft. There are hundreds of empty homes in Marion Oaks, North and South. Most are foreclosures and abandoned homes. Marion Oaks is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Marion County. Fifteen years ago there was no North and South Marion Oaks. There was nothing on the North side of 484, just woods and some dirt roads. The most well traveled dirt road is now 49th ave. I lived off of that road, near Marion Oaks for 21 years and went to the sunrise elem. I grew up there and I rode my bike to school every single day. My mom worked at the one and only dentist office for 22 years. I remember when there was no stores! When win-dixie was built it was like a dream come true! I always felt like it was a great place to grow up. Everyone was like family. Like anywhere else it matters how you treat someone. The people that have lived in Marion Oaks for so long probably have a feeling of intrusion on newcomers because they're seeing a lot of change and its not what they're used to. They probably feel like they were there first and you should be respectful and friendly to them and introduce yourself first. I'm looking at buying a house on the North side of 484 in the near future and I can't wait to be closer to friends and hope to make more! p.s. i am a white girl
