Hot Springs National Park has a rich history and is best known for the 47 hot springs that can be found on Hot Springs Mountain. The temperature of the springs averages about 143° F, and the water is naturally potable due to a natural filtering process. Visitors can use these soothing thermal waters to heal and relax at the two operating bathhouses on the Row or enjoy a drink from the hot springs water fountains where many fill bottles to take home. Today, a thriving city has been built up around the hot springs. Together nicknamed "The American Spa," Hot Springs National Park today surrounds the north end of the city of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
