Congress Park is the most amazing park retaining it's small resort town charm with famous Saragota Spring waters bubling up to several spring water fountains, a historic Casino from yesterday and an authentic eastern coast carousel to ride preserved in its own modern structure. The park takes on additional charm with statuary complete with water fountains designed by noteworthy artisians... More

I took out-of-town family members to Congress Park. We spent hours just wandering around the beautiful gardens. It is very nicely kept up and very clean!! A great place to relax or just walk, walk and walk.

I have been here many times over the years and the place is always immaculately kept up. The old restored casino is elegant as are the fountains and the old carousel. Nice to think of this place during the cold snowy winter here in Ohio. I will be back next summer!!! It is relaxing even during the racing season and... More

Congress Park is the gem of downtown Saratoga. The best sites are the Spirit of Life - Trask Memorial and the Spit and Spat fountain. Sit on the lawn or on benches and take in the scenery. In the season, the City offers rides on a restored carousel. The restored Casino houses a museum on the history of the city.... More

Such a pretty, shaded place. Wonderful for bikes, too. Even when the town is socked in by August heat, the shaded park lanes allow outdoor activities.

This is a really small park in the City of Saratoga Springs. You can't miss it if you walk on Broadway, our favorite activity (we live in Saratoga). There's not much in the park, it is not really a destination in itself, but a pretty walk, across from the old Casino building.

We love going to Congress Park. It is so quaint and beautiful. Congress Park is very scenic with breathtaking views. The park is clean and well kept. It is fun to watch the ducks swim in the pond. You can go for a leisurely stroll all year long or ride the historic wooden carousel during the summer. On the grounds... More

Walking through the park is very nice. There is a big enclosed carousel you can ride for $1. My hotel room overlooked the park as well. The views of the park where lovely. It had just snowed, so everything looked quite lovely. Families & pet owners definitely taking advantage of the sites, with sleigh riding & pups running around enjoying... More

Pretty park in which the Canfield Casino is located. There are ponds and seats with shade. The kids can run and chase the ducks which are plentiful. There is also a antique horse carousel for children and adults alike. A fun, relaxing afternoon when the weather is nice.
