A 45 foot deep natural spring is the centerpiece of this more than 210 acre large park, located on US 19 in Homosassa Springs, Florida. The springs are the headwaters of the beautiful Homosassa River that flows nine miles west into the Gulf of Mexico. Saltwater and freshwater fish are attracted to these natural springs with their constant, year-round temperature of 72 degrees F. A floating underwater observatory inside the springs allows the visitor to view fish and manatee at close range. About 350 volunteers help in the operation, maintenance and improvement of the park.
