So much to offer, great place to spend time in SaratogaFlag review
LOVE this State Park, it is a real gem. Amazing architecture of the original spa buildings add to the allure. Wonderful, grand hotel on property. Public golf course. Walking Paths. Mineral springs. History. This park has it all! Our winter favorite thing to do is go skating on the outside rink or talk a 2 mile walk/bike ride loop ending at the warming hut. A great ski lodge kind of feeling with a fire going and bathrooms. In the fall my kids love to throw the football in the field where you can skate in the winter. The kids are crazy for the fish stocking that happens in the fall. This year they went nuts when the weather turned colder catching cray fish in the stream. We also love to walk along the stream up past the geysers and to the little water fall. the kids like to learn about limestone and all the minerals. This park has so much to offer it is hard to capture. Great new playground next to the big pool. If you are in town during the summer without a place to cool off, a few dollars gets you into some lovely public pools.
Tips for Families
We love to picnic near the old spa buildings and often pop buy with sandwiches and a soccer ball. It is a lovely scene to spend an afternoon. Also big fans of cross-country skiing and then took the kids to the spa for a soak in a mineral bath.
