Beautiful park--needs some work in the fountains and ponds (they were a bit scummy) but nice to have in the center of town.

Nice park but not something I would go out of my way to get to. They have some museums, music and activities in and around the park. At 630 am the only thing open was a public drinking fountain from a spring. It's a nice place to get away from the noise of the car traffic.

We walked through this park after eating in the downtown area. We had stopped and grabbed some ice cream first. Thought it was a cool little park with some cool trees and little gazebos etc. Lots of people out and about, but didn't feel crowded. Nice spot to visit.

Congress Park was within walking distance of the Batcheller Mansion where we stayed overnight - we enjoyed the Saratoga History Museum lodged in the old casino within the park.

Beautiful park that is walking distance from downtown. Much history including casino museum located here. Ferris wheel for kids. I actually saw an impromptu Shakespeare play that was in rehearsal.

This is the perfect park for a late afternoon stroll! While there are no playgrounds for children, there is a carousel and plenty of room for them to run. If you get a chance, visit in the early summer or late spring to see all of the baby ducks!

Take a walk through on your way down Broadway. People outside. Live music. Fountains. Canfield Casino is an amazing venue for your next event!

We spent a couple of hours relaxing and strolling the grounds enjoying the springs, pools and the historic memorials in this park. We found it to be a good start to exploring Saratoga Springs, and, as it is directly across from the Visitor Center, it is easily accessible. We went into the Casino which is now the Saratoga Springs History... More
