Silver Springs Park is located just east of Ocala.
The lower center of this photo portrays the main spring at Silver Springs which is the headwaters of the Silver River. This spring pours over 550 million gallons of fresh water into the Silver River every 24 hours (enough to service all of New York City). This water, 99.8% pure, flows to the Oklawaha River, and then to the St. John's River and finally to the Atlantic Ocean at Jacksonville, Florida.
