Silver Springs Now Under State's Wing
Published September 15th, 2013
Starting Monday, Silver Springs will close it's doors.
But it's not for very long.
The state of Florida decided to take control of Silver Springs: Nature's Theme Park from Palace Entertainment in January and today was their last day of operations.
The park will remain closed until October 1st, when it will reopen as a state park.
Park frequents are hoping the state can improve the "nature" of the park.
"I really do pray that the state will take it over and treat it well and they'll preserve everything and that it will be a place that will be enjoyed for many many years by alot of people."
Wild Waters is also managed by the state now.
Silvers Springs Park is set to be open from 8 in the morning until sundown and the state is looking to charge $8 per car for entry to the park.
