Silver Springs is a magnitude 1 spring that pumps out 550 million gallons of sparkling-clear water every day, enough to supply the entire city of New York. The spring feeds the Silver Springs river, with deep jungle on each side and forests of grass beds waving underwater. Silver Springs is known for its clear, deep water, aquatic life, and wild Rhesus monkeys, sunning turtles, unusual water fowl and alligators living along the river banks.
In October 2013 the Silver River Park will become part of the Florida State Park system to ensure that the river's unaltered grandeur of nature is preserved for the generations to come.
