Quiet Communities
Nestled in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains, the city of Malvern is a warm, friendly community. Gentle rolling
hills, peaceful forests, sparkling lakes and clean rivers make it a haven for outdoor adventures. Magnet Cove, a small town

Rich History
Hot Spring County has a rich history with many Arkansas “firsts.” The state’s first governor, James. S. Conway, was a resident
of Magnet Cove; Arkansas’ first river bridge was built over the Ouachita River at Rockport; and Malvern was the first city in
Arkansas to implement the use of electricity.
Natural Beauty
Fifteen miles from Malvern, Lake Catherine State Park offers 56 miles of scenic shoreline. Thousands of spectators gather
to watch “Smokin’ in the Cove,” a boat racing event held in September at Jack’s Landing. The Ouachita River Trail is open to
pedestrians and cyclists. It also provides easy access to the river for
