Evans Plunge Adds Wheel Chair Accessible Ramp

In a flurry of facility updates, Evans Plunge has added a 120-foot-long wheel chair ramp to improve accessibility to the pool, reports KOTA News . The new ramp comes alongside numerous additional updates to the facility, including hot showers, LED lighting, and new flooring in the women’s locker room.

The City of Hot Springs purchased Evans Plunge in 2013 for $1.5 million dollars. The mineral pool is the longest continually-running attraction in the hills, at 126 years of operation.
