Rainbow Springs man-made waterfalls are a very unique part of Florida and the Florida State Parks system and unfortunately they have not been flowing for a few years, and they had been flowing since the 1930s.
Let us introduce you to our two waterfalls that have been a part of Rainbow Springs history for generations and are truly missed; Rainbow Falls, Florida’s highest cascade at a towering 60 feet that was finished in 1936 and once described as “Rainbow Falls a man-made marvel of rare majesty and beauty… the only scenic waterfall in Florida”. And Seminole Falls is the second tallest and shares a pump house with Rainbow Falls, both of these waterfalls are man-made with the water being pumped up from the river and returned directly back through short streams and smaller waterfalls, which can be seen flowing under several small bridges along your walk through the park.
Thousands of visitors have stood in awe and have photographed these beautiful magnificent waterfalls and many of you come to Rainbow Springs to see the waterfalls, some of you have many memories of them or have been told stories about them, they are an important part of the history of this park.
The Friends of Rainbow Springs State Park are raising funds to restore and maintain the waterfalls to preserve their history and for the visitors of Rainbow Springs State Park and for generations to come to enjoy.
Your generous donation to help with this special project is greatly appreciated.
