We invite you to come observe and enjoy the unique ecosystem of this spring-fed river. Springs, and their corresponding rivers, have been widely used as important recreational and educational locations throughout Florida history. The spring leads to the underground waterways, flowing through limestone caverns below the surface. The clear water flows directly from the Florida aquifer and the surrounding wetlands and uplands have adapted to host a diverse variety of plants and animals, including many protected species.
Winter Wonderland is back again, and we’re excited to celebrate the festive season all December long. In addition to our well-loved activities like daily “snow” flurries, the Christmas tree forest and our 24-ft tall tree, and visits from your favorite Christmas characters, Santa is inviting all the good boys and girls for the first time ever to his Workshop, right here at Wekiva Island.
