Astoria Hot Springs Park
For decades, Astoria Hot Springs was central to the cultural and recreational fabric of Jackson, Wyoming. The natural mineral soaking pools on the bank of the Snake River attracted residents and visitors until the late 1990s when the facility was closed to public access and the community lost one of its most-loved outdoor spaces.
Today, The Trust for Public Land is working with the Town of Jackson, designers, and community partners to protect the property and transform 100 acres into a new riverfront park centered around the hot springs. In 2015, planned development was relocated and the landscape was rezoned as park land. In July 2016, The Trust for Public Land became the official owner of Astoria, permanently protecting public access to the park.
The future Astoria Hot Springs Park was designed through an innovative, participatory process led by DHM Design. More than 1,500 residents helped refine plans for the new park during public workshops, creative placemaking events, and site visits. Construction will begin once the $5 million Campaign for Astoria Hot Springs Park is complete.
