Description and Activities:
In the early 1900s the silver screen came to Silver Springs as movie makers realized the beautiful translucent waters were ideal for making underwater movies. Some of the more well-known movies filmed here were six of the original "Tarzan" movies filmed in the 1930s and 1940s.


Located throughout the park are a number of animal exhibits – World of Bears, Big Gator Lagoon, Panther Prowl, and a giraffe encounter.
