Green Springs


A beautiful little green gem in Enterprise, FL, Green Springs does indeed get its name from the green hue sulfur spring in the park. This area is rich in history. And as one can imagine people flocked to this idyllic spot. In the 1800’s the area served as a health spa. Lucky for us it is now a county park to be enjoyed by everyone. Nestled amongst the sprawling oaks, sweet gum and southern magnolias are short scenic trails throughout the park that lead to the spring and a creek.

The park is well shaded under ancient trees giving it a deep, dark forest appeal. Although swimming is not allowed, it is a great place for picnics and connects to 2 different hiking systems, the Spring-to-Spring Trail and the East Central Regional Rail Trail, just beyond the park’s gates for a longer hike than the trails within the park. I have seen barred owls here calling to each other at dusk.
