Libbey Physical Medicine Center Thermal Water Jug Fountain to Close Temporarily

Hot Springs, AR – The thermal water jug fountain at the Libbey Physical Medicine Center at 500 Reserve Street will close temporarily beginning April 19, 2021.  Hot Springs National Park staff and contractors are beginning a project to replace the roof on the Libbey Bathhouse and workers will need to close the area around it for safety.   The fountain is expected to be closed for approximately 2 months or until the work is complete.

Thermal water will still be available at Park Headquarters on the corner of Central Ave and Reserve Street, as well as at the Hill Wheatley Plaza fountain next to the City of Hot Springs’ Visitor Center. The cold-water jug fountains at Happy Hollow and on Whittington Avenue also will remain open.
