Lake Weir is located in Marion County, Florida and almost borders the Ocala National Forest. The lake was named after Nathaniel A. Ware, a land official. The lake's shore is surrounded by residential areas and citrus groves. The lake also has a peninsula named Carney Island, after the brothers who owned the island and planted a massive citrus grove on it in the 1800's.

Carney Island now serves the community as a park created by Marion County. Carney Island Park has a multitude of recreational opportunities, including a sand beach swimming area and a volleyball net. There are hiking and walking trails, picnic areas, a playground, concessions, restrooms, and even horseshoes. There are ample chances for viewing wildlife at the park. Some animals that can be seen include multiple species of fish and birds, alligators, and the occasional bull shark. The park also provides a public use boat ramp for boaters.
