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.
