Description

A letter from Arthur W. Sinclair, executive manager of the Winter Garden Chamber of Commerce, to C. W. Sheffield, chairman of the Technical Committee. The committee was formed by Florida Governor Claude R. Kirk, Jr. (1926-2011) to develop plans for the restoration of Lake Apopka. In this letter, Sinclair discusses plans for the possible creation of a recreational park in the Gourd Neck Springs area, at the southwest corner of Lake Apopka. Gourd Neck Springs contains the only natural spring in the lake. Sinclair tells Sheffield of earlier efforts by the Gourd Neck Springs Park Association to rally support for the creation of a state park. Sinclair closes the letter by urging Sheffield to pass along these plans to Governor Kirk.
