State adds Blue Springs to its wish list for purchase

Published June 19, 2015 The Gainesville Sun
Friday morning in Tallahassee, the state’s Acquisition and Restoration Council unanimously voted to add the swimming hole and 405-acre property on the Santa Fe River near High Springs to the list of first-magnitude springs the state is seeking to buy with Florida Forever funds.

The same family has owned the private park for nearly 60 years but have had the property on the market since 2013.

Blue Springs is a large second-magnitude spring, but there are other similar springs on the state’s priority purchase list of first-magnitude springs.
