Congress park is a nice place to stroll and take a break. It fits with the mansion district of all the Victorian wooden mansions in Saratoga

The park is a wonderful place to sit and rest, to hear music, share a picnic meal, even have a carousel ride, ot sample the spring waters. It's not a big park , but it's just right for the city and its citizens .

So comforting and a place to feel special. Saratogians stop and talk to everyone. It is like living in another world.

A lovely small park in the main street (Broadway) in Saratoga Springs. The Visitor Center across the street will provide a plastic cup so you can sample the "waters" from several of the natural springs fountains.
