When you arrive at in the parking area, you'll find a covered picnic area, a playground, and a building with restrooms. There are 36 acres in this park, and there are plenty of both paved and natural trails. Throughout the pathways, there are several informational panels/signs that share information about the springs and the history of this area. Here are two of them:
Starting from the parking lot, follow the paved trail to visit the Springs. It's not far at all, and you'll probably smell the sulfur before you actually see the incredible green water. It is....stunning. It looks like I photoshopped the color in the pictures - but I didn't!
According to what I've read, this is one of only a few sulfur springs left in Florida. The water in the springs was considered restorative and healing by Native Americans in the area. In the 19th century, there was even a hotel built near the springs for "invalids" to come and soak in the springs for their health.
Take a picnic with you, then sit under the pavilion for lunch after you explore the park! You and your family will really enjoy the peaceful beauty of this place. I honestly can't wait to go back to Green Springs Park next time we are in West Volusia county.
Green Springs Park is located at 994 Enterprise/Osteen Road, Enterprise, FL. The park is open from sunrise to sunset and there is no fee for admission.
Up next: DeLeon Springs State Park and the awesome restaurant where you cook your own pancakes at the table!
