Here's a great article about one of the crown jewels of the St Johns River-to-Sea Loop.   And now's the time to visit during Manatee Season!  At the SunRail Connections Fair at DeBary Station a lot of people were interested in cycling to Blue Spring Park from DeBary.  It's possible now, and soon it will be a protected paved trail all the way from the SunRail Station to the park and beyond to DeLeon Springs and points North.  Sign up for our In the Loop newsletter to keep up to date about progress.

BLUE SPRING STATE PARK

Away from the crowded beaches and major theme parks that attract millions of visitors from around the globe, is the natural Florida. Places where nature is left intact and is preserved.  Places where you can witness the beauty of the “old” Florida.  The Springs.  And there are a lot of them.  In fact, geologists have estimated there to be more than 900 springs in the state, including Blue Spring.

Blue Spring State Park in Orange City is home to the largest spring on the St. John’s River.  With more than 2,600 acres, the park offers something for just about any nature lover. Or manatee lover.
