Our first stop in Saratoga Springs was to the Visitor information centre (across the street from Congress Park), and the lovely ladies there advised us to check out the Park.
We checked it out right away.
The park is gorgeous, well landscaped, beautiful gated entrance. The park has a lovely walking trail to explore it all. There are a number of sculptures, ponds, and a creek running through it. The main attraction is the Spring water fountains that many tourists come to to try the natural spring water that the city is famous for.
There is a carousel within the park that was carved by Marcus Charles Illinois. As avid lovers of carousels, we wanted to take a ride, but the carousel is cash only and we didn’t have any cash on us.
Plan to bring cash if you visit so you can ride the carousel.
The Italian Gardens at one end are beautiful and have a number of statues.
There are bird houses throughout the park.
This is a gorgeous first stop when you visit Saratoga, but don’t forget to check out the Saratoga Springs History Museum on property as well. This park would also be a great location to enjoy a picnic lunch.
There is parking inside the park – but it is limited and very tightly monitored. If you park in a spot that is not authorized you will get a ticket within minutes of parking.

We love strolling through Congress Park. The paths take you around all of the beautiful springs. Our kids love the old school carousel. It is still only $1 to ride. And, there is also plenty of seating around the park.

Definitely worth a visit.

Take a break from all that shopping in Saratoga Springs and enjoy the beauty of this town! This is park is stunning. Loved all the flowly willow trees, nature and the natural spring fountains. Its iconic to stop at each one for a photo or a sip of the famous spring water! Not sure if it really has healing properties 🤷🏼‍♀️ But it was iconic and honestly, tasted pretty clean!

We spent most of our time following a hawk trying to snatch dinner from the numerous ducks in the ponds and streams set in the landscaped lawns. It was the end of great foliage, so even though the ducks were still winning when we left, we had a pleasant late afternoon there.

Congress Park is a lovely park on Broadway. Even though it is on Broadway, while there one may escape the downtown area. Children will enjoy seeing the ducks too.

Beautiful and historic park. My dog really enjoyed the walk throughout this park. The spring water is very smelly when you get close to it, but it plays such an important role in the history of Saratoga.
