My friend and I pondered why the word "spa" showed up in the park name, and were tickled pink to discover the on-site spa that dates back to the 1930s. After some wrong turns and wandering around the historical baths (improved signage would be helpful, as long as it didn't detract from the historical aspects of the location) we found... More

Once you have seen Congress Park, Saragota Park is disappointing. If you like hiking, it is probably great because there are trails. Otherwise, it is nice,but nothing special. Oh yes, it has several fountains with mineral water. After the first few, the excitement is not there.

This is the focal point for Saratoga Springs. Huge State Park that is self-contained. Racing season starts July 24 through the end of August. People come from all over to this famed Park. Saratoga National Golf Club is located in the midst, so everything is available. See all kinds of exotic cars, people watch or just enjoy the park for... More

Walking paths, informational signs, well designed, butterflies and dragon flies and birds, the springs and geysers - healing waters, relaxing atmosphere!

We stayed at the Gideon Putnam for a couple nights and had the opportunity to walk around the park. The gardens are quite lovely. It appears to be a popular area for outdoor exercising and activities.

What a gorgeous place. The avenue of the pines is picturesque, the Gideon Putnam hotel is terrific, the mineral baths, the golf course, everything is just first class. Just driving through the place is worth the time.

We only had about two hours to spend at the park, but could have stayed for much longer. Great place to bike ride, walk and explore. A real family park with gatherings all over the place. You can enjoy live music and visit the museums too (we did not, but would next time). I did find it strange that we... More

A cute place. I love to see spring water at each turn. There are some spring water and mineral water faucets that are safe to drink. Be sure to you water bottle, and have some fresh spring water.

Saratoga Spa State Park is a jewel! It is one of the most scenic places in Saratoga Springs, yet it is often overlooked. I love going for walks or a ski through the forrest, along the creek or through the magnificent SPAC grounds! It has historic bath houses and the gorgeous Springs Banquet Hall. Of course, you can drink wonderful... More
