Fresh water "LAZY RIVER" - air temps were about 82, water was cool but not too bad - certainly warm enough to play in. Noseeums (tiny gnats) were particularly bad and bites leave itchy welts afterwards - so bring bug spray. Still worth it. Water is crystalline and unlike anything you've likely experienced.

This is a beautifully kept park with lovely walking trails and a gorgeous natural river meandering down from its natural spring. Swimming is allowed here. Watch out for wildlife in its natural habitat. Recommended to get back to nature and escape the man-made attractions.

Kelly Park is the anti Disney. Meander along a crystal clear spring that sprouts forth from caves at the top of the nature walk and spot birds, natural flora, and maybe an otter or two. It is a little like a natural lazy river, only without the chlorine and concrete. It does get a little crowded on the weekends in... More

This "river" is just beautiful. I suggest to come early when the park opens because it may get full and they close when they reach max capacity, but do re-open later in the day. They have grills so you can bring your own food and they also has restrooms with showers.The water is freezing so I suggest jumping right in!... More

You just can not beat the value of these parks. The lazy river was incredible and so relaxing with a place to buy food if you do not bring your won. I picked some on the way on a local supermarket and just relaxed at the place. You can hire the inflatables if you do not remember to bring one.... More

We spent the afternoon here over Christmas holidays and brought our nieces to swim and play. While playing in the playground area in the mulch surrounding the jungle gym equipment they were severely bitten by fire ants and required medical attention. Shame on the County/City for allowing an unsafe playground, not to mention the fees collected for that privilege.

I love this place. I've lived in Florida my whole life and I am finally exploring the places I've always wanted to see. This one was one my boyfriend and I ran into and it was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. We came to this park on a Sunday to go into Rock Springs which... More

When you're looking for a break from the theme parks or wonder what the locals do for fun - come to Kelly Park! We visited mid-week in early November (way off season) and could not find enough wonderful things to say. The water was chilly but the sun was warm enough to make swimming pleasant. It felt like we had... More
