Special Features:Rainbow Springs was formerly the site of a privately owned attraction that lost most of its business when Disney World opened. In the early 1990s volunteers cleared the area and opened it as a park on week-ends, and the Florida Park Service officially opened it as a state park in 1995. The springs are referred to as the headsprings of the Rainbow River, which has been designated a National Natural Landmark and an Outstanding Florida Waterway.
