This spring is usually the least crowded. and almost never has a lifeguard. Its normally on the quiet side with some wildlife, birds, squirrels, and a pretty loop walk. Its nice to wade around. I like it.

The springs are pretty and worth seeing if you are in the area. If you aren’t swimming there isn’t much else to do unless you bring s book and relax by the water to read.

Lots of shade. Very clean. The park closes when they are full and it limits the crowd. Fun to go any time of the year but especially in the hot weather ... great swimming and fun for kids.
