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 .

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.
