Celebrate North Port’s 60th Anniversary with Free Admission to Warm Mineral Springs Park on June 18

The City is celebrating its 60th Anniversary, by waiving daily admission at Warm Mineral Springs Park for all Sarasota County residents on Tuesday, June 18, 2019. The park will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The only warm spring in Florida, it maintains 85-87 degrees year-round and contains more than 50 different minerals – one of the highest mineral content of any natural spring in the United States. People worldwide visit annually to soak in the mineral-dense waters.

Beneath the Spring’s depths is one of the most important underwater archeological sites in America. It is believed that the Spring dates to the Ice Age. During exploratory dives in the 1950s, the remains of a prehistoric man and evidence of several creatures were discovered, including saber tooth tigers, giant sloths, tortoises, and even camels. The Spring is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

Warm Mineral Springs Park is owned by the City of North Port and operated by National & State Park Concessions. Proof of residence will be required for admission into the Springs on June 18. Acceptable proof of residence includes a driver’s license or an FPL bill, water bill, tax bill, or deed. Spa services are not included in the free admission and must be booked in advance and paid for separately.
