  • One of the premiere public places in the country. It's got a little bit of everything that Saratoga Springs as a city has to offer. Don't miss it when you are in town.
  • Wonderful and large park here...well kept with paved walkways to enjoy the grounds. There's also a lot of the historical springs in the park where you can take a taste of the natural water that made Saratoga famous. Public bathrooms are also available.
  • The ambience here is very relaxing. The park is large enough to exercise and very family oriented so you can picnic and hang out. Loved it!
  • It's a very interesting park. There's no actual playground ,but there's a heck ton of room to do things. There's many monuments, which is great for Pokemon hunting and of course they're Pokestops. There's little niches here and there to do a little hiding even in the thick of summer with all the tourists. The park has quite a few steep hills and stairs so you can get your heart thumping. It's not all up and down. The main part is quite level, no need to worry. Several ponds and fountains give the park and extra oomph along with a brook that leads from one of the ponds to the others. Very picturesque.
  • It is a really lovely park. It has several Springs with funky tasting water and it has a spit and spat fountains and has some beautiful sculptures and it has what used to be a casino, I think it used to be casino now it's Museum and I think they have parties. It has a beautiful Pond that has lots of ducks. I just wish the last time I realized and remembered that ducks poop because I let my dog walk around where the ducks were and she rolled in their poop and she was messy. She was ecstatically happy, I don't know why but she was horribly messy. But she enjoyed the park and I enjoyed the park. The park has a cute little Carousel it's fun to go on rides. It's just a lovely place to go and eat lunch or spend the day or even an hour. They have some lovely trees. I mentioned spit and spat Fountain before I feel like I'm an Alice in Wonderland the end of August because it's got these little Pine trees and it's got the canna lilies that are really tall and it's got I think catalpa trees that they topped off and they're have giving leaves. So normally pine trees are tall but these are small and normally flowers are small but these are tall and normally that catalpa tree is huge but these are small and their leaves are huge so everything's all mixed up and it's like another world and then spits that are spewing water at each other. And they have a little area with a fountain surrounded by hedges and roses in the hedge areas. The roses smell lovely. Even if you don't have time to go for a walk if you have your lunch pull your car in, park eat your lunch it's just a nice enjoyable place.
