The park is home to several natural springs that have been an integral part of this lands identity. Beginning with the early indigenous communities who gathered here for fresh water, to the land owners who bottled and sold the water nationally in the late 1800s and early 1900s, to the communities who brought glass bottles from home to collect fresh spring water, this land is very much tied to the water that has sustained life in our community for hundreds of years.
