Hot Springs Village is the “Largest Gated Community” in America, and
it has much to offer its residents. Many of the residents call Hot Springs
Village “The Best Kept Secret” in which to live, retire, and rear a family.

11 lakes, performing arts center, 24 miles of hiking trails, tennis & pickle
ball courts, fitness center, 2 pools (1 indoor & 1 outdoor) , lawn bowling,
bocce ball plus 200+ clubs and organizations.
Hot Springs Village has a total of six electronic gates, including two
manned gates. The Village has its own police force, fireman, 24/7 paid,
along with 3 ambulances & paramedics. These factors give residents a safe
and secure feeling.
I am often asked about the medical facilities. The medical services are
outstanding, especially since St. Vincent (Little Rock) and St. Joe Mercy
(Hot Springs) merged in the spring of 2014. National Park Hospital is also
located in Hot Springs. Full-time physicians, clinics, rehabilitation centers,
eye doctors, and dentists are located in Hot Springs Village.
The Village is located about 50 miles from Little Rock and 14 miles
from Hot Springs. The surrounding area of Hot Springs is full of unique,
wonderful activities: botanical garden, malls, art galleries, convention
center, many restaurants, riverboat rides, Lakes Hamilton, Catherine,
& Ouachita, Oaklawn Horse Racing Track & Casino, Magic Springs
Amusement Park, natural springs’ drinking water. Also in downtown Hot
Springs is Bath House Row. Go through the museum that traces the history
of the Baths or have a massage & take a bath in the Buckstaff Bath House, a
With all of this, plus much more, you will understand why Arkansas is
called the Natural State.
