Alderman's Ford Park on the Alafia River

Alderman's Ford Park is near the headwaters of the Alafia River. This scenic bridge goes over the north and south prongs of the Alafia. There are creeks and springs that flow into the river all around the park.

Here's the view from the bridge. Most of the Alafia River water is brown. In some places it is clear enough to see the bottom of the river and appears orange.

There's a paved jogging trail that is part of a loop. It smells woodsy and spicey along the trails, but every so often there's the sweet smell of spring water. I looked around, but couldn't find a spring.

A large playground and picnic area is near the main entrance.

The light reflected like rainbows in the river.

I walked along a dried up creek bed to get down to the river. It's an interesting park to explore.
