Summer Day Get-A-Way
What could be more fun than a get away at the River Park Inn where you can walk across the street to a chemical free spring fed pool on a hot summer day. The water temperature from the spring is 78 degrees but the pool seems warmer than that to me. There is our B&B in the background on the left. We are thrilled to have such a resort quality facility opened to the public so close to our front door. The spring itself is amazing with a visible depth of 29 feet and a splash park there just behind the fence. The City of Green Cove Springs has done an amazing job with a complete make over. If you were ever here before you will remember the old pool that was constructed in the 1930's by the WPA after the Great Depression. There is so much history here all surrounding the mineral spring that feeds the pool. We joke that it was the real Fountain of Youth that Ponce De Leon was seeking in the New World. Come see for yourself... you may agree.
