Florida State Parks will follow local orders requiring facial coverings or masks to provide for staff and visitor safety. These requirements vary from area to area. Our main priority is the safety of our guests and staff. We will continue to review operations on a daily basis and make additional operational changes as may be deemed necessary for protection of public health. Please review individual park pages for specific information for each location.
Weeki Wachee Springs State Park will be restoring the area around the headspring. Retention ponds are being built to collect stormwater, which will prevent sediments and pollutants from entering the spring area. Additionally, the Thunderbolt Waterslide will be removed for safety reasons. Buccaneer Bay and some other park amenities are closed. Visitors can canoe or kayak on the Weeki Wachee River. Rental equipment will be available. When social distancing guidelines allow, mermaid shows, river boat tours and wildlife shows will be available.
Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is open for kayak launch only. Restroom availability may be limited, all other park facilities are closed. Visitors are expected to maintain distances of at least six feet apart.
