The Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and Iron Mountain Hot Springs will be closed until March 22.

In a news release sent shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday, co-owner Steve Beckley said staff members and guests were being contacted as quickly as possible about the temporary closure.

“This is new territory for us all, and we ask for patience and understanding as we work through the details,” Beckley said in the release. “We are contacting as many employees in person as possible tonight and will continue to do so in the morning. The health and safety of our guests, employees and community is our top priority.”

The release said both Iron Mountain and Adventure Park adhered tightly to state recommendations regarding COVID-19 over the past few days, but closed in recognition of the “unprecedented circumstances” right now.

More information should be available in the days to come and regular updates can be found on websites and Facebook pages for both the hot springs and adventure park, the release states.
