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 new Astoria Park Conservancy, Jackson community, designers, and local partners to protect the property and transform 98 acres into a new riverfront park centered on 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 2,500 residents helped refine plans for the new park during public workshops, creative placemaking events, and site visits. The Trust for Public Land and Astoria Park Conservancy are happy to announce the completion of the $6 million fundraising campaign for the Astoria Hot Springs Park! Over 500 donors helped to make the new Astoria a reality, including the Snake River Sporting Club who made a gift to complete the campaign, bringing their total campaign giving to just over $1 million. With this fundraising success, we will begin construction of the hot springs this spring. Please save the date for our ground breaking ceremony at Astoria on Saturday, March 23 during the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club’s annual Karen Oatey Pole Pedal Paddle. Thank you for your support and we can’t wait to see you at Astoria!
