We visited in early April as the snow was still melting. The park statuary and fountains hadn't been taken out of winter storage yet, and yet even without those beautiful and charming features, this park is still a beautiful place to spend an hour or so. The resident ducks are fun to watch and totally unflappable to the presence of... More

We are locals so we visit Congress Park a lot. Wonderful after a dinner downtown to just stroll around, with great views in every corner. From water features, and sculptures to the historic casino and even a restored Merry-Go-Round, there is something special for everyone. My favorite is when the trees are in full bloom, just breath taking. Make some... More

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.
