State park offers viewing pleasure

Published Aug. 07, 2008 - Miami Herald
As many as 200,000 people visit this gorgeous, scenic park about 40 miles northwest of Gainesville each year -- most of them to swim, snorkel, paddle and float on tubes down the glass-clear, 3 ½-mile spring run in summer. Eight springs pump up to 233 million gallons of fresh water daily into the river, which flows for six miles south through hammocks and wetlands to join the Santa Fe, and then the Suwannee.
