Saratoga Spa State Park, Saratoga Springs
(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Listed as a National Historic Landmark, Saratoga Spa State Park is best known for its mineral springs but is also home to a variety of cultural, historical, and recreational activities. The area was deemed a State Reservation in 1909 after businesses were exploiting the springs and depleting them. After World War II, veterans and Holocaust survivors were brought to the springs to benefit from its medicinal effects. Now the park boasts two swimming pools and two golf courses--a championship 18-hole course and a 9-hole course. Visit the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, the Roosevelt Baths and Spa, or the other museums located in the park. Take a free guided "tasting" tour of the springs to sample the different types of mineral water. If you would like an appointment at the spa, be sure to make reservations ahead of time. Plan your visit to Saratoga Spa State Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Saratoga Springs vacation route planner.

  • Something about a state park so close to home is so special. I do not think people realize how lucky they are when living to these natural wonders! 
  • You should certainly take an hour or two out of your day to walk the trails and see the state park. If you enjoy nature, it's for you! 
  • Absolutely beautiful, take the time to visit, you won't regret it! Gideon Putnam hotel is wonderful & treat yourself to a massage!

  • This is a great place to go hiking. However, I was here for the Ragnar Relay. I had sooooo much fun giving the safety speech. The park is beautiful.
  • Love this place. Great for the family. The springs are very cool!
  • One of my favorite state parks. I have yet to see a concert there, but I love the park. I run cross country races there, and it's a very beautiful place go take walks. And nearby Saratoga is a great place for shopping and hanging out for some great food. It makes for a fantastic day trip.
  • This is a nice park, but it is not what the pictures show! It's just one block of trees and sidewalk, no golf course and swimming like Google is saying. The address listed is not Brooklyn, it's in Saratoga, north of Albany.
  • Great park with a spa and springs
