Hot Springs National Park is a U.S. National Park in Garland County, Arkansas, adjacent to the city of Hot Springs, the county seat. Hot Springs Reservation was initially created by President Andrew Jackson and an act of Congress on April 20, 1832 to be preserved for future recreation.
Established before the concept of a national park existed, it was the first time that a piece of land had been set aside by the federal government to preserve its use as an area for recreation.

Yellowstone National Park may have the official designation as the nationʼs first National Park but now you know who really was first! ;)
