Walking, hiking, running, biking, golfing, birding, people watching, you name it, you can enjoy it here at "The Spa!" This park has free fresh running spring water you can take in your own bottles any time. The excellent music and dance venue, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) is right in the middle of this park. There are two pools... More

My wife & I did the mineral baths & couples massage. Very worth it. We went back for a second mineral bath soak. Also, don't neglect to do some walking in the beautiful surrounding park. Try the spring water-drinking water-too. Roosevelt did some great things & this is one of them.

The Saratoga State Park may be the best run state park in NY. Aside from having event venues, swimming pools, golf course, its also a beautifully maintained park with many picnic areas, walking paths, and trails. Its a great place to walk the dog, log some miles, play frisbee, or take in a concert or the ballet at SPAC. A... More

I asked our inn keeper if the parking fee would be around $10. He smiled and reminded me this is an old money and wealthy community and so the park is free! The park has a lovely walk among natural springs that leads you to the Roosevelt Baths, which is now a lovely high-end spa. The water from the springs... More

The Park is conducting free guided tour several times a day. Went on a lovely 40 minute butterfly walk and learned the endangered Karner Blues. Other tours listed include Springs, Architecture, Blue birds and history. As a "local" I will be back to learn something new about this wonder-filled park.

Came here to see the springs but the hiking was not what my friends enjoyed....it would be better to have known there was a lot of climbing involved.
