GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. Developers of the Iron Mountain Hot Springs at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park are holding a groundbreaking ceremony Monday at the site of the historic Iron Springs Spa west of Two Rivers Park.
The property has been vacant since 1996 when the historic bath house and red brick mansion were torn down to make way for what ended up being an unsuccessful attempt by the previous owners to build a water slide adventure park.
According to a spokesperson for the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, the plans include a 40-by-60-foot family pool, four smaller relaxation pools, changing rooms, buildings to house admissions, concessions and retail operations.
The adventure park isn't wasting any time getting this project off the ground either. Plans to redevelop the historic Iron Springs Spa on the bank of the Colorado River just received a unanimous approval from the City of Glenwood Springs on October 16th.
Glenwood Springs has many natural hot springs that flow from beneath the mountains into the Colorado River.
