AAA Editor Notes
Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park, 465 Wakulla Park Dr., was known to early Native Americans for its plentiful wildlife. The main spring, with a water temperature of 69 F, is considered one of the state's deepest, having been explored to a depth of 350 feet. The maximum flow was recorded in 1973 at 1.2 billion gallons a day; in 1931 the minimum flow was measured at 20 million gallons. The average is 252 million gallons of water daily.
A popular “birding mecca,” the park offers swimming and hiking opportunities, and a bicycle and nature trail. Narrated river cruises provide glimpses of animals in their native habitats.
