Okahumpka Service Plaza Initiates Bold Landscaping Project
The goal was to be innovative inside and out when reconstructing the Okahumpka Service Plaza (Florida’s Turnpike Milepost 299). The Bold Landscaping project installed at the service plaza greatly enhances the aesthetics inside and out. Six hundred twenty six palm trees and 228 shrubs create a mature, natural look. Special care was taken to preserve the existing trees and add color through deployment of Crepe Myrtles and Southern Magnolias. In addition to the landscaping a newly installed 400 gallon fresh water aquarium is located between the restaurant seating area and the convenience store.
