Jackson, WY (AP) - A nonprofit hopes Astoria Hot Springs south of Jackson can be reopened to the public as part of a 100-acre park with a lodge and condominiums.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported Saturday the springs were closed in 1999 after more than 40 years as a swimming pool that was open to the public.
The Trust for Public Land is working on an agreement with Northlight Trust, a New York real estate business that owns the hot springs, and the Snake River Sporting Club.
The new park would have a series of smaller pools fed by the hot springs and might also include a fishing pond for children.
Planners say the park would have tables and pavilions might also have a hiking trail and rock outcroppings for bouldering.
