Saratoga Spa State Park, Saratoga Springs

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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Saratoga Springs holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Saratoga Spa State Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This park has everything you might need: disc golf, swimming, tennis, trails, volleyball courts, playgrounds, golf and a ton of history. Also great in the winter after a snowfall. Take advantage of cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
  • Wonderful time. I enjoyed my massage therapist and she did an excellent job.
  • Beautiful area and park...you have to taste the water because "when in Rome"...but it's different!
  • Great place for concerts, trails, biking golf and just tossing the frisbee
  • great walking, biking and historical park. Both free and fee access in the summer, but all the park is easily walk-able from the free parking. updated bathrooms at most of the picnic pavilions.
