Silver Springs State Park is open seven days a week. Glass Bottom Boat tours and Paddling Adventures canoe and kayak rentals are operating. Federal law now requires all passengers and crew to wear facemasks on Glass Bottom Boat tours. Please note we are not yet offering shuttle service from Ray Wayside Park.

We are taking precautions to help ensure your safe visit, but we need your help. Please observe social distancing guidelines at all times during your visit to the park, and face masks are encouraged (required on Glass Bottom Boat tours). Remember, we’re in this together!

Silver Springs State Park is located just east of downtown Ocala in Silver Springs, Florida.
