The outstanding feature of the 625 acre park is the spring, overlooking beautiful Spring Garden Run, producing 19 million gallons of water a day at 72 degrees year-round. The swimming area is accessible by stairs, ramp, and a swimmer lift. Lifeguards are provided during the summer months only.
Canoes, paddleboats and kayaks may be rented from the park's concession. The park's paddling trail provides access to the 22,000 acre Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge, with lakes, creeks and marshes to explore. Fishing is excellent in the spring run from the shore or the fishing dock.
Visitors can hike the 4.2 mile Wild Persimmon Hiking Trail or take a leisurely stroll on the one-half mile paved Nature Trail to see the 600 year-old cypress tree. The Butterfly Garden has about 500 plants for the benefit of resident and migrating butterflies and hummingbirds.
Picnic tables, grills and a playground are available under the grand live oak trees, with four pavilions available for rent. Two additional pavilions are free, first-come, first served. All are near the spring and restrooms.
