Help Save Astoria Hot Springs Park!

For decades, residents and visitors to Jackson, Wyoming, enjoyed these natural mineral soaking pools on the banks of the Snake River for birthday parties, picnics, and camping trips. But in the late 1990s, the facility closed and the community lost access to one its most-loved recreation areas. Now, the Town of Jackson, designers, park planners, and community groups are working to protect the property from development and transform 100 acres along the Snake River into a unique park.
