Wall Springs Park

The famous not so famous Wall Springs. The springs had its heyday in the 1940's when it was owned by the Wall Family.
A post card picture of the springs. Back in the forties the wealthy people from the north came here to bath in the springs for its supposed healing powers. In promoting the springs the Wall family said Ponce de leon visited here in search of the "fountain of youth".
This is where the springs come up out of the ground. The water has no smell and no taste. It is just pure water.

The park has an observation tower that is several stories high. From atop the tower you can see out over the gulf waters. There were a bunch of school kids here and we did't go up in the tower.
