Blue Spring is a natural wonder, pouring 38 million gallons of cold, clear water each day into its trout-stocked lagoon.Start your adventure with an insightful historic film in the Visitor Center, then stroll the handicapped-accessible walkways and inviting garden paths that wind through the 33 acres of native gardens. Visit the historic mill site that dates from the 1840's, see the Bluff Shelter on the National Register of Historic Places, and walk along the path of the Trail of Tears. Resident Appaloosas and abundant native flora and fauna delight visitors, and our charming gift shop offers an array of items to keep the exerience alive. Blue Spring is a quiet getaway and a perfect place for weddings, group outings or any special occasion.

We loved this garden. While it is small, it is stunning. Self guided tours, with an occasional event. Perfect for weddings.

This place is actually called "Blue Spring Heritage Center". It is a nice place to stop and spend a couple of hours. Beautiful spring and fun feeding the trout. The gardens a very well maintained. Not ot bad admission price of 9.75 per person.
