Green Springs is unique in that it's one of the few remaining green sulfur springs you can find in the entire state.

While swimming in the springs is not allowed, there no shortage of gorgeous nature to explore in the area, and vantage points from which to admire the waters.

The springs have an interesting history.

It has been, at one point during its history, sacred land for the Native Americans who lived there, a health spa, and used as an attraction to entertain guests who came in from DeBary Hall.

Today, Green Springs is the central destination in this sprawling tropical park.

Outside of Green Springs, the park is filled with lush trails and overlooks that provide a scenic view of the park. 

This green oasis is the trailhead to the Spring-To-Spring Trail, which connects the waters to another outlet, Gemini Springs. 

This refreshing watering hole is a unique spring you'll rarely see anywhere else in The Sunshine State, and you can explore all it has to offer for free.
