Kelly Park features a free-flowing natural spring (Rock Spring - 68 degrees Farenheit year round) issuing from a vertical rock bluff. Rock Springs Run, a clear, swift creek, is popular with tubers.

The Wekiva – Rock Springs Run Canoe Trail connects this park with Wekiva Springs State Park via Rock Springs Run, which flows approximately 10 miles from Kelly Park to the Wekiva River just below Wekiwa Springs.

The park features a full-service concession, picnic pavilions and playground. Tent and RV camping are also available at this park. Kelly Park's Camp Joy for group camping is just next door.

This park fills up quickly on summer weekends, and closes when it reaches maximum capacity, so plan to arrive early. A favorite activity is floating or “tubing” the spring run. Bring your own, or rent tubes from private outfitters located just outside the park.
