This is a beautiful historic park right in the center of Saratoga Springs. There are two duck ponds kids of all ages love, a wonderful carousel, and flowering trees of all sorts. A great way to spend an leisurely afternoon. It is a quick walk from most of downtown area hotels and restaurants.

We decided to go snowshoeing here. Pretty spacious and quiet. Probably would like to come up for a visit in the summer/spring when the snow is melted to actually be able to sample the springs and scenery. Gift store was opened and we stopped in. From briefly looking through the "museum" it didn't seem to be worth the $5/pp admission... More

I love this park and try to visit everytime I am in Saratoga. Went to the Chowderfest and wanted to show my grandchildren the lovely park. But the walkways and stairs were not clear. A real disappointment. With 30,000 people in town for the weekend event, I would think the park should be featured!

Lots of ducks, trees, fountains and ponds. Great place to take the little on out for the day. Plenty of open room for kids to run. They also have a memorial for veterans that is well done.

We enjoyed walking through the park and sampling the water from some of the springs. The park is nicely laid out and has some interesting sculpture and several ponds with ducks. A nice respite from shopping!

We went for the "Victorian Stroll" and they had it open it was such a warm night. To see everyone enjoying themselves in the middle of winter it was so wonderful ! In the spring and summer it's such a inviting place to walk around,there is a pond and people spending time with their families

This is a great park to have lunch. Also you need to try the water from the Springs. Each one tastes different. Very nice place to watch ducks and just relax. It's nice to walk through the gardens and see Spit and Spat. Very nice park.

We go to the park often. The sculptures never get old. We enjoy just sitting to watch the ducks or listen to the water. There are a variety of events happening all year long.

I walk this park before work and really like the peaceful setting this place is. It is just a park that is well kept up and a nice stroll to get away from downtown saratoga.

I live nearby, so I go there often when my grandchildren visit. The love to run around and see the ducks and ride the carousel. You can also bring lunch and picnic on the grass.
