The Saratoga Performing Arts Center is nestled within the 2,400-acre Saratoga Spa State Park.
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, Saratoga Automobile Museum, Gideon Putnam Resort and the 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-foot double slide and a children’s wading pool with a mushroom fountain. The slide pool has a minimum height requirement of 48 inches 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. For more information and to reserve a tee time online, visit Saratoga Spa Golf.
The gentle terrain offers picnic areas and shady stream side 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.
