Description 

The Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park is a privately owned 15-acre (61,000 m2) park in St. Augustine, Florida, located along Hospital Creek, part of the Intracoastal Waterway. It is touted as being the likely 1513 Florida landing site of Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon, although recent research by amateur historian Douglas Peck has placed another possible landing site in the vicinity of Cape Canaveral in Brevard County. The park contains a freshwater spring that is claimed to be the freshwater source referred to by Ponce de Leon in Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas' Historia General. - Wikipedia
