Rather small area and the spring has been encircled with a walkway so it's not very natural looking. The park is not very large but do yourself a favor and cook yourself some pancakes right at your table at the Spanish Sugar Mill there.

The park reminds me a a resort area from a study movie. It is worth going to. It cost $6 to get in the park. It is well worth all the fun you can have.
