Royal Springs near Live Oak, Florida

Royal Springs Park is one of many different parks featuring a spring in North Florida.  This is a county park officially known as "Hugh Bryon Hollingsworth, Sr." park - free to all who come to visit.  The day we visited was a nice quiet somewhat rainy day and the only others there at the park were a couple of divers.  Please note - like all spring parks in this area - No dogs are allowed.

After parking the car, I walked over to the spring and saw a beautiful turquoise pool of water - wow.  It was like looking into a dark blue hole where the bottom cannot be seen.  The stairs are not actually 'circular' but this photograph was taken with a super wide lens (16mm on full frame camera) and it will distort things a little bit when they are closer to the lens.

After viewing from this platform (above), I headed to the next platform further east.  This photograph below shows the platform that the first two photographs were taken from.

You can see the turquoise colored water - it's big pool - and at this time, the water level appears to be a little low.

Travelling further again around the spring, this photograph below shows the platform the first couple of photographs were taken from.

This photograph shows the staircase down to the spring on the left.  The water way going through this picture leads to the Suwannee River.

This is a beautiful county park with nice cool, clear water.  Great for cooling off, access from the Suwannee River if you're boating.
