Hot Springs National Park surrounds the north end of the city of Hot Springs. The town built up around the hot springs with the result that the springs are now in the middle of the downtown area.
The city has a large parking garage on Exchange Street (one block west of the Hot Springs National Park visitor center ) and metered car spaces with first-come, first serve RV and bus parking one block south of the Hot Springs National Park visitor center. Cars may park along the west side of Central Avenue across the street from the Hot Springs National Park Visitor Center, but parking is limited and monitored for only 2 hours of use.
The city of Hot Springs has a bus system, Intracity Transit, that has routes through the major streets in town.
