Saratoga Spa State Park, distinguished by its classical architecture and listed as a National Historic Landmark, is noted for its diverse cultural, aesthetic and recreational resources. In addition to the nationally-known Saratoga Performing Arts Center, the Spa Little Theater, the National Museum of Dance, the Saratoga Automobile Museum, the Gideon Putnam Resort and Roosevelt Baths and Spa, the park offers a multitude of traditional recreation opportunities.

The Peerless Pool Complex consists of a main pool with a zero-depth entry, separate slide pool with a 19' double slide and a children's wading pool with a mushroom fountain. The slide pool has a minimum height requirement of 48" tall. The Historic Victoria Pool is a smaller pool surrounded by arched promenades. Both pool areas include food and beverage services, showers, locker rooms and restrooms.

The Saratoga Spa State Park Golf Course offers two beautiful golf courses; a championship 18-hole course and a challenging 9-hole course, complete with pro shop and restaurant. The gentle terrain offers picnic areas, shady streamside trails, suitable for the nature-lover or the casual walker, as well as certified running courses used by joggers and high school and college athletes. Winter activities include cross-country skiing on approximately 12 miles of trails, ice skating, ice hockey.

Volunteers Partner with Park to improve the historic "Vale of Springs"
To recognize the 100th anniversary of the preservation of the mineral springs, volunteers serving on the Saratoga Capital District Park Commission have been leading the Spa Park Centennial Project project to beautify and restore the mineral springs area of the park. The project includes landscaping, new accessible pathways, a stairway and overlook at the Geyser waterfall, and interpretive signs. The mineral springs tour is one of the most popular educational programs offered at the Park. This project will build new spaces to better accomodate the tours and provide better information about the extrodinary natural features of the springs along Geyser brook. Support the effort and donate today!

Saratoga Spa State Park Master Plan. The year-long public master planning process for Spa Park concluded with a plan that strengthens preservation of natural areas while encouraging and expanding public use. The undeveloped areas of the 2,200 acre park are now officially designated as natural areas designed to preserve habitats and support trails. Plans for the northern area of the park call for new uses for vacant structures. Plans for a new Visitor Center in the Lincoln Bathhouse are balanced by a proposal to lease out office space to generate revenue.
