 Hello Aviators! Silver Springs, a beautiful park in Ocala famous for the pure spring water of the Silver River. These springs produce over 500 million gallons of clear water each day! Visitors can spend hours exploring the river’s wildlife attractions by walking along riverbank trails or taking glass bottom boat tours, which offer nearly perfect views into the river’s ecosystem below. The park also provides opportunities to catch glimpses of rare animals in its many wildlife exhibits, which feature species ranging from white alligators and native snakes to cougars and black bears. Other activities you can enjoy include exploring the park’s botanical gardens, children’s petting zoo, and wilderness shows.
