North and north-central Florida are brimming with amazing crystal-clear rivers and pools, each fed by one or more of its own natural springs. One such spot is beautiful Silver Springs Park, a perfect day-trip during a Orlando vacation to Orlando's Sunshine Resorts or The Fountains. At the Silver Springs wildlife park, these springs pump out enough sparkling clear water to supply the entire city of New York. Of course, this abundance of fresh water attracts a plethora of wildlife as well as visitors eager to see the beauty.
"Wings of the Springs" used to be presented at the outdoor Silver River Showcase Theater. This dramatic free flight show featured a diverse collection of birds. It showcased parrots of the tropical rainforest, comical ducks and chickens, and the magnificent raptors (including hawks, eagles, owls, falcons and vultures). The show was sure to broadend the visitor's horizon with an out of the ordinary surprise ending.
At the end of 2013, Florida's park service will take over Silver Springs. When the park service takes over operations, the rides, the parrots and the reptile farm, will be gone, and Silver springs will become the kind of natural Florida that people are hoping to see.
