Green Cove Springs officials: Restoration of historic Spring Park to go forward

Published Jul 8, 2015
The team will develop the design, working drawings and bid specifications for the project calling for construction of an activity building, replacement of the public swimming pool and deck as well as preservation and enhancement of the spring boil and its outfall, other site improvements, according to the city’s Request For Qualifications (RFQ) detailing that bidding process.

The spring boil is where water surges up from the sulphur spring beneath the ground at the park. The spring water feeds the park’s swimming pool then flows down a small creek — Spring Run — to empty into the St. Johns River. The estimated flow rate of the water, which originates from the Floridan aquifer, is about 2,200 gallons per minute, city officials have said.
