Bouleware Springs Nature Park and Historic Waterworks
The 19th-century waterworks building, located at Boulware Springs, once provided the water supply for the City of Gainesville. Boulware Springs produces approximately 194,000 gallons of water a day, which flows into Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. Boulware Springs is also a trailhead for the 17-mile Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail. Picnic facilities are available, as well as an area for parking and unloading horses to ride along the state trail. The trail is largely used by hikers, bicyclists, and horseback riders.
