Warm Mineral Springs Park

Find that old Florida vibe

Step into the past at the only natural warm spring in Florida! With a consistent average temperature of 85 degrees year-round, Warm Mineral Springs Park provides visitors with a number of therapeutic and passive recreation options. The spring is rumored to have one of the highest mineral contents of any natural spring in the United States. With anaerobic and highly mineralized properties, internationally known for its purported healing qualities, the park attracts more than 150,000 visitors annually who journey to soak in its waters.

The springs and the buildings are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Evidence of prehistoric man, saber-toothed tigers and giant sloths have been discovered here and date back more than 10,000 years! The buildings were built to celebrate Florida’s Quadricentennial and were designed by architect Jack West, one of the leaders of the Sarasota School of Architecture.

At Warm Mineral Springs Park, you will find a day full of relaxation.

**Please note, due to impacts from Hurricane Elsa and Ian - the building complex which includes the gift shop, permanent showers, restrooms, changing facilities and lockers are not currently available. A modular admissions building has been brought onsite. A portable restroom trailer is available for visitor use. Concession services will not be available onsite; but visitors have the option to bring in small coolers for food and drink. Glassware and alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
