DEP Secretary, Noah Valenstein: Our 175 award-winning parks span 800,000 acres and offer countless opportunities to create memories with your friends and family. Growing up in Gainesville, one of my favorite Florida State Park stories is swimming in the sometimes delightfully warm, sometimes refreshingly cool (depending on the weather outside) spring at Gilchrist Blue Springs State Park.
We invite you to visit any one of our amazing state parks, and to save your adventures with the Special Edition Real Florida Passport. This travel-sized journal is the perfect place to collect your memories and discover new places to explore!
