The natural beauty of the St. Johns River is one of the things I think you will love most about Green Cove Springs. Today there are many scenic places in Florida, but they have been overbuilt for the pleasure of those who can afford to purchase the property. The riverfront park, known as Spring Park, in Green Cove Springs is held in perpetuity to preserve it for the enjoyment of all who come here regardless of their status in life. Here you will find Manatee, owls, hawks egrets, osprey and unusually tame squirrels. The pier affords a great place so socialize and when the shrimp are running it is truly a shrimp festival. The river front park with its playground, cookout pavilions. gazebos, creek, pool, natural spring and splash park is a blessing to all who visit.
