Make a Connection

Hot Springs was established by Congress as a national site on April 20, 1832 (4 Stat. 505), to conserve the water from the 47 springs that emerge from Hot Springs Mountain and to ensure that water was made available for drinking and therapy.  This makes Hot Springs National Park the oldest unit in the national park system.

Teachers, did you know that you and your class can visit the oldest unit in the national park system?  Hot Springs National Park offers teachers the opportunity to visit the park through class field trips and activities.  Can't make it to the park?  The National Park Service also offers online classroom activities and traveling trunks for your classroom.
