“Beautiful Park downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I love this park when I visit Saratoga, especially because I can take my dog with me and he loves it! The town keeps it very well maintained and it has some beautiful paths to walk through and see sculputres.

“Springs, Music & Fireworks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Congress Park is a small but pretty park in Saratoga Springs. Several of the namesake springs can be found in and around the park which includes a small museum, carousel and walking paths.

On July 4th we joined the locals and watched the fireworks which brightened the sky while a mixture of patriotic songs played through the park. It was a fun evening!

“Shakespeare in the Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

During the end of July Shakespeare is performed in the open air in the Park. Our family has been going on since 2000 and is a great event - and free. The seating is on the grass so bring a blanket or chairs and a picnic dinner.

“Beautiful Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Located in downtown Saratoga this park as a couple of different access points. There are some fountains and some memorials. It see's a lot of action from the locals as far as gatherings and picnics. There is a nice carosel in the park for the kids to ride and in the summer they offer performances from a local acting company.

“A park to be proud of”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

There is an enclosed carousel, a small body of water, plenty of grass to spread out a blanket for a picnic, and of course, a spring. The water is not very tasty but I hear there are medicinal
reasons for using the water, such as softer skin, and curing sties.
