Great place for a picnic

Beautiful location for pictures and picnics! The carousel is a favorite and great price to ride (just remember to check the times of operation )

Very nice park in the city for walking, picnicing, children activities, etc. Nearby famous mineral spring fountain. Walking distance to the bustling Broadway for shopping, dining, nightlife. Note: Will be crowded during the horse racing season (last week in July through Labor Day weekend). Only one negative: the pond has a resident population of migratory waterfowl that are constantly fouling... More

My husband and I love to walk around Congress Park on a nice day. It's easy to grab food nearby or some ice cream and picnic right there. Also a great place to just hang out and read a book or meet friends. I haven't been to the Shakespeare shows or movie nights yet but I've heard great things!

Congress Park is great! There is so much history, there are statues all around it is just simply beautiful. There is the old casino and the duck ponds and the merry go round and the coy fish pond and the wooden bridges. Oh just check it out. :)

Passed through one winter evening and it was very nice. Not well maintained in the winter so we sort of walked through at our own risk and it was very icey in parts but worth the walk

The heart of City surrounding by Broadway, circular St and Sprint St. Several paths inside one reservoir and Morrissey Fountain you may enjoy.

We didn't spend much time in the park, but our interest was piqued and we plan to return in the summer. Saratoga Springs is rich with history and Congress Park and the museum are not to be missed. Bring the little ones in season to ride the carousel.

The experience was different. We sampled different water springs, most of which were not great tasting because of the sulphur content. Fun to walk around though!!

Just off Broadway, Congress Park is a beautiful oasis with ponds, trees, walk-ways and the Canfield Casino building right in the middle - now a museum and catering hall. At the Spring Street end, you can ride on the Carousel during the summer. Shakespeare in the Park is a wonderful treat on summer evenings. Bring your lawn chair and supper... More
