The Friends of Silver Springs State Park

To Preserve, Protect and Enhance the Springs, River, and Park

What We Hope to Preserve and Protect


Friends of Silver Springs are people and businesses that care about the quality of community life in the Ocala/Marion County area.  We are people with diverse interests, but with a common thread - we care about the natural resource we have available in Silver Springs State Park.

We are bike riders, boaters, equestrians, campers, dog walkers, photographers, hikers, birders, nature enthusiasts, parents and grandparents, schoolchildren, volunteers and business owners. What brings us together is the beauty, recreational value and the expansive ecological variety of Silver Springs State Park.

We incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 2005. Please join us.
