What locals are saying

"The Blood Waters of Dr. Z", a 1971 B-movie about an evil scientist who develops a formula that turns human beings into walking catfish (yes, you read that correctly, walking catfish) was filmed partly in Green Cove Springs. The movie became famous in the late 1990s after it was lampooned on the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000.

On the shores of the St. Johns River, near a bend surrounded by lush green trees, sits the city of Green Cove Springs. Thousands of years ago, Native Americans were the future city's first inhabitants, drawn to what would become Green Cove Springs by the same mineral-suffused waters that, in the early 19th century, gave the community its name. Today, the city, which serves as the seat of Clay County in northeast Florida is home to 6,908 residents who enjoy a variety of amenities that meet their practical and recreational needs. This includes restaurants and shops that keep them fed and clothed to a city-owned pier and a public swimming pool filled by the same spring waters that attracted the region's first residents so many years ago.

If you're looking to find an apartment in Green Cove Springs, you're in luck, as the community offers a variety of options, including one bedroom apartments and two bedroom apartments located mere blocks from the river's shore
