Florence Recreation Area and Trap Shooting Range

With a renovated, 3-acre, spring-fed fishing pond, Florence provides anglers with a good opportunity to land bluegills, largemouth bass, and catfish. The area also contains a restored prairie and is popular with pheasant hunters and trap shooters. (Only supervised target shooting, during designated times, is allowed at the shooting range. For public safety, please respect this rule and refrain from shooting when the range is not open and supervised. Thank you!)
