About English Springs Park
We came across English Springs Park by chance one day while in the area. This turned out to be a beautiful park with a waterfall and the perfect spot to relax for awhile before continuing our day.
There were a ton of turtles including a bottlenose turtle (not sure what its real name is at this point). It was such a treat to see though.
The lake was a stunning turquoise the day we visited and so many water-loving creatures were basking in the sun. It was a great afternoon all around.
If you choose to do the loop around the pond it is .8 miles. There will most likely be many people visiting here both on foot and wheels. This is a good park for young children or the elderly as it is short with minimal elevation gain.
Features at English Springs Park include a playground, 3 gazebos, picnic tables, BBQ’s, two basketball half-courts, the pond, restrooms, water bottle fill station and two bike racks.
I guess English Springs Park is a catch basin which is designed to hold extra water during rainy periods. Therefore when the water levels rise too much, the park is closed. Once the water recedes the park re-opens.
