Local Area

Hot Springs National Park

Water. That's what attracts people to Hot Springs.

Old documents show that American Indians knew about and bathed in the hot springs during the late 1700s and the early 1800s. Their ancestors may have also known about the hot springs.

Some believe that the traces of minerals and the temperature (143 F/62 C) gie the waters whatever therapeutic properties they may have. People have used these hot springs for more than two hundred years to treat illnesses and to relax.

Both rich and poor came for the baths, and a town built up around the Hot Springs Reservation to accommodate them. Together nicknamed "The American Spa," Hot Springs National Park today surrounds the north end of the city of Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Come - touch and taste the water. The hot springs are open for all to enjoy.
