This county-owned park is open April 1st to September 30th each year, and sits on the banks of the Wekiva River, which is a spring run from a privately-owned spring. The water is normally crystal-clear, except in flood conditions. The park includes covered picnic facilities and sandy river access. The Wekiva River has been designated an Outstanding Florida Waterway.

Directions: From Bronson, Florida, take CR 337 south (turn at Janney Realty on U.S. 27-Alt or Hathaway Avenue), continue to CR 343, turn right. The park entrance is on the right side of the road just before the bridge over the Wekiva River.
