“One of My Favorite Springs!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

I LOVE ROCK SPRINGS!!! Kelly Park (Rock Springs) is one of the best springs in Florida!! The water is beautiful and always about 72 degrees. There is plenty of room for people to set up there stuff next to the water, but try to get there early because it can get pretty crowded! There are also lifeguards on duty! The best part of Kelly Park (Rock Springs) is the lazy river! You can rent a huge inner tube at this small bar/restaurant right before you enter Kelly Park. You can float down the lazy river which leads you to the spring's head where everyone swims. You don't have to use an inner tube to float down the river; you can swim if you'd like. The scenery as you float along the way is so beautiful! The lazy river is great for snorkeling as well!
Again, Kelly Park is one of my favorite Florida Springs, and I definitely recommend it!!

“Lots of people enjoyed the park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stopped for the afternoon to enjoy some fresh air. The spring has clear water. You could see the bass swimming. The water was warm enough to wade in. The birds liked the area as well and shared the water with us. Some of the visitors were tubing along the springs. Others were swimming. Very clean and pleasant park

“A Family Favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

Kelly Park is an Orange County Park with a lovely shallow swimming area and best of all a crystal clear, bubbling spring from which the river flows down through the park. Rent inner tubes at the Rock Springs Bar and Grill outside the park, squeeze them into the car or hold them on the roof and drive slowly to the park entrance, then tube down the river as often as you like. Beautiful woods and all facilities well looked after.

“Wonderful place. One favourite places in Florida. Really worth a half day trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Really neat! Very clean and organized, great place for nature lovers. I loved snorkelling among all the fishes and even got to see a tortoise. Make sure to bring a waterproof camera if you're fond of snorkeling and own one.

“Fun for the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

A little piece of old Florida, not far from Orlando, with a large flowing spring tumbling around boulders and traveling far enough through the park for fun tubing. Easy-to-hike walking trails under wild palm and spreading pine trees, as well as picnic tables near fire-grates, make the park enjoyable for the whole family. The ban on dogs leaves the park cleaner and safer for little ones and protects the wildlife.
